# Mathematics B.S.

This program is designed to offer a broad exposure to the rich field of mathematics. There are three tracks in the B.S. program: general track, statistics track and applied concentration track. All three tracks are suited for students interested in pursuing graduate work or careers in the mathematical sciences. The general track requires 15 mathematics courses (48 credit hours), consisting of 9 required courses (30 hours) and 6 electives (18 hours). The statistics track, which could lead to further study or careers in statistics or actuarial science, also requires 15 mathematics courses (48 credit hours) with at least 5 of these courses (15 hours) statistically oriented. The applied concentration track requires 11 mathematics courses (36 hours) and 4 courses (12-16 hours) in an area of concentration (e.g. analytics, physics, chemistry, biology, or computer science). The concentration courses must be pre-approved by the Mathematics Curriculum Committee and the Department Chair. Additionally, all three tracks require two semesters of physics with lab (8 credit hours).

## Program Requirements

Students within the department must maintain a minimum 2.0 G.P.A. in coursework required for their major and taken at D’Youville College. Students who fail to earn this G.P.A. will be placed on probation in the major. Probation may continue for a maximum of three consecutive semesters or a total of four non- consecutive semesters. Students who exceed these limits will be dismissed from the major. Students may appeal these decisions on academic status by submitting, in writing to the department chairperson, reasons why exceptional consideration may be justified. Additionally, Students must earn a minimum grade of B- in Calculus I (MAT-125) and Calculus II (MAT-126)

The B.S. in mathematics requires a minimum SAT score of 1170 (Math and Verbal) (or ACT of 24), a high school average of 85 percent and a rank in the top 25 percent of one’s class. Transfer students are required to have a minimum G.P.A. of 3.0.

The B.A. in mathematics requires a minimum SAT score of 1080 (Math and Verbal) (or ACT of 21), a high school average of 85 percent and a rank in the top 50 percent of one’s class. Transfer students are required to have a minimum G.P.A. of 2.5.

Students nearly meeting these requirements will be considered for these programs by the department. Students denied immediate acceptance into the mathematics B.S. will be accepted in to the mathematics B.A. program if they meet its requirements. These students may be promoted into the mathematics B.S. program after they have sufficiently demonstrated competence (usually after the completion of two semesters).
