Requirements for the major in mathematics, B.S. program


 To earn the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in mathematics, students must:

2. Complete four additional 3- or 4-credit courses in the mathematical sciences chosen from


Courses labeled MTH, APM, MOR or STA at the 3000-4000 level, with the exception of MTH 4997.

Each course must be completed with a grade of at least C.  APM 2663, MTH 4662 and MTH 4114 must be included among these four courses for students in the secondary education program. Well-prepared students may substitute 5000-level courses with the approval of the departmental adviser.

3. Complete CSI 2300 - Object-Oriented Computing I (4) with a grade of at least C.


4. Complete three additional 3- or 4-credit courses, as approved by the departmental adviser, in an area related to mathematics, with an average grade of at least C.


The area chosen will normally be in science, engineering, computer science, economics or statistics. Courses used to satisfy this requirement may also be used to satisfy university general education or college exploratory requirements. Students in the secondary education program will be deemed to have satisfied this requirement with their secondary teaching minor, regardless of its subject area.

Additional Information


In addition to these major requirements, students must complete the Oakland University General Education Requirements , the College of Arts and Sciences College Exploratory Requirement , and an appropriate number of free elective classes to meet the overall credit requirement for the degree (in most cases 124; some degrees may require a greater number).

As a general rule, no more than eight credits of course work used to satisfy one major, minor or concentration may be applied toward another, but exceptions to this rule may be allowed with the written approval of the program coordinators.
