The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics by Contract is for students who wish to design their own program of study,.

Students who complete the mathematics major are able to: 

  1. Analyze and solve real-world problems using a variety of mathematical techniques,
  2. Convey mathematical information in effective ways, 
  3. Choose and employ appropriate technology, 
  4. Secure desired employment or gain admission to graduate or professional programs of study.

Students must complete a contract designed and signed by the student and a Mathematics faculty sponsor and approved by the Mathematics Department chair.  The written contract will state how the student is to complete a minimum of 48 credits, to be distributed as follows:

  • At least 30 credits in mathematics, with at least 12 of those credits at the 3000 level or higher;
  • At least 18 credits in a second discipline.

Normally the contract is approved by the time the student has reached the fifth semester or 75 credits.

NOTE: Those students wishing to have education as the second discipline should opt for BA.MAT.SED  OR BA.MAT.EED  since all Education Department requirements for Elementary Education and Secondary Education must be satisfied for a teaching degree.
