BA in Mathematics

Overview:

It is the nature of Mathematics to examine concepts from nearly all areas of thought using a uniquely abstract and deductive approach. Although mathematical investigation often involves the use of expressions which represent numbers, many of the discoveries of the discipline extend beyond the quantitative.

General Education Requirements

Traditional Undergraduate Program, and the Hayworth School of Graduate & Continuing Studies Undergraduate Program. Prospective students should apply to the program whose curriculum and services best meets their needs.

  • The Traditional Undergraduate Program has degree requirements and services designed for the 18-22 year old student. Most traditional undergraduates live in residence halls and are enrolled full-time. A full range of student life activities and student services are available to students in this program, including the Core Program in the Liberal Arts, the John Belk International Program and the Honors Program. 
  • The Hayworth School of Graduate & Continuing Studies Undergraduate Program has degree requirements and services designed for the adult learner. Most Hayworth undergraduates are employed full-time and enrolled part-time. The Hayworth School also admits those persons wishing to take undergraduate courses as a non-degree candidate. The Hayworth School of Graduate & Continuing Studies realizes the demands that adult students face and assists with study plans, individual student advising and programs designed with flexibility to meet the specific needs of the adult learner. Classes meeting Hayworth degree requirements and several majors and minors are scheduled in the evenings for the convenience of students employed during the day.
