Bachelor of Science Degree
College of Science and Mathematics,
Department of Mathematics and Statistics
(770) 423-6327

The program of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics provides a solid foundation in the application of analytical, geometrical, and numerical methods in problem solving and logical deduction. In addition to a core set of mathematics courses, the program also includes concentrations of courses in pure mathematics, computational mathematics, applied statistics or in mathematics-related disciplines that prepare the student for graduate study or for employment in various mathematics-related fields such as actuarial, financial, pre-engineering, secondary mathematics teacher certification, or applied statistics. During the Junior or Senior year, students complete a capstone experience which might be an internship, a faculty-directed research project, or a special topics course.

Notes:


1 It is recommended that these courses be chosen from among those that are specified for one of the specific concentration areas described in the KSU Mathematics Major Handbook. A copy of this handbook can be obtained electronically at http://math.kennesaw.edu/advising/. The 6 hours of Area F concentration-based electives are 2000 level courses. A minimum of 24 of the 27 hours of upper division concentration-based electives must be courses at the 3000 or 4000 level. (Up to 3 hours of upper level concentration-based electives can be satisfied using “overflow” hours that have been accumulated from science courses taken in Area D.) Each student is strongly encouraged to meet with his/her advisor at least once per semester in order to ensure that the student remains on track toward completion of the selected program of study.

2 The capstone experience might be an internship, faculty-directed research project, or special topics course. All Capstone experiences require pre-approval by the department curriculum committee. This approval process must be initiated by the student (through his or her advisor) at least one semester before the capstone experience is to be undertaken.
