Math Major (B.S. & B.A.)
The Math Department offers the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree and the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in mathematics. The mathematics requirements for the two degrees are identical; the difference between them is the number of science credits that are required.
Mathematicians use theory, computational techniques, algorithms and computer technology to solve problems in various fields, including basic sciences, engineering, computer science, economics, business, finance, and social sciences. The study of mathematics is traditionally divided into pure (theoretical) mathematics, which involves discovering new mathematical principles and relationships, and applied mathematics, which develops mathematical techniques for solving practical problems. Statistics is a sub-field of applied mathematics that focuses on data analysis.
A minor in mathematics consists of 18 credits in mathematics, with a grade of C or better in each course. Transfer students must complete a minimum of 9 of these credits at CSU to earn the minor.
Students interested in a career or graduate school that requires a research component involving data analysis should consider earning a Statistics minor. The study of mathematics, psychology, sociology, biology, environmental science, health science, social science, among others, can be greatly enhanced by a minor in statistics.
