Major in Computational Mathematics

This degree is a Bachelor of Science major offered only at Grenfell Campus. The Mathematics Major covers the essential undergraduate topics in mathematics, develops rigorous logical thinking, and equips students with computational techniques to model and solve real-world problems. Students enrolled in this degree program are required to complete 120 credit-hours on either a full or part-time basis.

The course requirements for a major in Computational Mathematics are:

  1. Mathematics 1000, 1001, 2000, 2050, 2051, 2130, 2320, 3000, 3132, 3240, 4242, and 4950,
  2. Three credit hours in a computer programming course,
  3. Three credit hours in a statistics course,
  4. Three credit hours in a physics chosen from Physics 1020, 1050, 2151, or 2400,
  5. Philosophy 2030 (or the former Philosophy 2110), and
  6. Twelve additional credit hours in mathematics at the 3000 level or higher, at least three credit hours of which must be at the 4000 level.

 

Core Program Requirements

All students enrolled in this degree program must complete the following 24 credit hours to meet the School of Science and the Environment Core Program Requirements: :    

  1. One of:

    1. 6 credit hours in English courses;
