Mathematics, BA


In order to earn the bachelor of arts degree with a major in mathematics, students must complete a minimum of 180 credits with a cumulative and major/department grade point average of 2.00. This degree is particularly appropriate for students who intend to teach mathematics at the K-12 level. The bachelor of arts degree includes either the standard core option with electives or the specialization in humanities for teaching. Either option can prepare students to enter teacher certification and master degree programs in education. The program leading to the bachelor of arts degree does not confer a teaching credential, but is preparation for someone who intends to enter a master’s degree in teaching program. The specialization in humanities for teaching option is for entering freshmen only.
