# MATH - Mathematics Major (B.A.)

BA - Bachelor of Arts

### Name

Mathematics Major (B.A.)

### Department(s)

### Description

The mathematics major is designed around a core of required courses that provides a strong foundation in both computational and theoretical mathematics. Beyond this core, electives from both pure and applied mathematics serve to accommodate students whose aspirations may include double-majoring with any of the College's other quantitative majors, pursuing graduate study in mathematics or a cognate field, or building a career that requires a strong mathematical background. Yet not all students who major in mathematics necessarily have long-term quantitative interests. Recent math majors have doubled with classics, English, language and culture studies, music, and theater and dance.

Students whose goals include graduate study in mathematics should supplement the core requirements with as many 300-level electives as possible and should consult with their mathematics adviser or with the department chair at the earliest possible date in

To earn a major in mathematics, students must complete a total of ten courses of at least one credit each at the 200-level or above. These courses must be selected so as to satisfy the requirements below. Note that students may elect to complete the general mathematics major which provides the student a broad foundation in both pure and applied mathematics, or may choose to complete the major with a concentration in applied mathematics. In both cases, students must earn a grade of C- or better in each course that is counted toward these requirements. (In the case of Math 205, the minimum grade requirement is C+.)
