The Bachelor of Science degree curriculum is designed to prepare students for positions in business, industry, or government, as well as for graduate work in mathematics. (See Undergraduate Studies: General Information, especially the General Education section for information on requirements beyond those in the major.)
The total number of units required for the Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics is 180 units, of which 101-108 units are in the major depending on the option selected. Consult with an advisor for the specific number of units required in all areas of the degree including GE and free electives.
The following lists the modifications to the General GE Requirements for math majors.
Select from natural science or engineering courses.
Upper Division Electives (8 units)
Select an additional 8 units of upper division courses in mathematics or computer science with adviser approval. At least 4 units must be in computer science.
V. Single Subject Teaching Option (38 units)
In order to obtain a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics, students must complete the subject matter certification requirement and required professional education coursework (see Option IV for a list of these classes). Option V satisfies only subject matter requirements while BA Option IV satisfies both subject matter requirement and required professional education coursework.
For the required professional education coursework students should consult the Charter College of Education for credential requirements at least two quarters prior to graduation. Students should also consult the Mathematics Department credential advisor prior to taking MATH 350.
