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 requires completion of a minor or track that prepares the student for graduate study or for employment in various mathematics-related fields. The program also offers accelerated tracks leading to the MAT teacher certification and the MS in applied statistics.

 

General Education (42 Credit Hours)


see listing of requirements 

Specific General Education requirements for this major


University-Wide Fitness For Living Requirement (3 Credit Hours)


Lower Division Major Requirements (Area F) (18 Credit Hours)


  • Lower division electives - Any 2000-level course in the KSU curriculum (2 Credit Hours)
  • Math-Science overflow (2 Credit Hours)

Formal Minor or Track Elective (15 Credit Hours)


The student must complete a formal KSU minor (consult a current catalog for a listing) or one of the following 15-hour tracks. If a chosen minor does not require all 15 hours, the remaining hours are selected from Upper Division Mathematics and Statistics Electives.

Track 1: Continued Study in Mathematics and Statistics


Any 15 hours of courses from Upper Division Mathematics and Statistics Electives. Many different directions can be taken with these 15 additional hours such as concentration on mathematical applications in continuous or discrete areas, preparation for graduate programs in mathematics, etc. Consult with your advisor to carefully select the courses that best suit your career plans.

Track 2: Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree Option for KSU’s MS in Applied Statistics


Take the maximum allowed number of graduate courses. See Note 2. Complete the rest of the track with any additional courses from Upper Division Mathematics and Statistics Electives.

Track 3: Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree Option for KSU’s MAT program in Mathematics


Take the maximum allowed number of graduate courses. See Note 2. Complete the rest of the track with any additional courses from the following list:

Free Electives (9 Credit Hours)


Any course in the university curriculum.

Program Total (123 Credit Hours)


Notes:


NOTE 1: At most 9 total hours of credit can be given for MATH 3398 (Internship) and at most 3 of these hours can be used as Upper Division Mathematics and Statistics Electives. The remaining hours can be used as free electives.

NOTE 2: Plan ahead and simultaneously begin graduate studies during your senior year. The Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree Option provides qualified KSU undergraduate students the opportunity to begin graduate studies at KSU in their senior year and to simultaneously satisfy some remaining requirements for the bachelor’s degree and the beginning requirements of an advanced degree. A student may use a limited number of credit hours of graduate-level courses offered within a single degree program in meeting the requirements of both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree. See http://www.kennesaw.edu/graduate/accelerated_degree.shtml for full details. Tracks 2 and 3 are designed for the Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree Option.
