B.S. in Math

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

New Tracks in the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

Degree Program Hours: 120

The work towards a Bachelor degree in Mathematics emphasizes deep study of pure mathematics geared to prepare students planning to continue into graduate mathematics studies.

Lower Division Preparation

To qualify for admission to the program, FIU undergraduates must have met all the lower division requirements including CLAST, completed 60 semester hours, and must be otherwise acceptable into the program.

Required Courses

  • MAC 2311 Calculus I
  • MAC 2312 Calculus II
  • MAC 2313 Calculus III
  • MAP 2302 Differential Equations
  • MAS 3105 Linear Algebra

One of the following courses is also required:

  • COP 2210 Introduction to Programming
  • COP 2250 Java Programming
  • CGS 2423 C for Engineers

In addition, we require the completion of two of non-math courses with lab.

Upper Division Program

Required Courses

  • MAA 3200 Introduction to Advance Mathematics (3 credits)
  • MAA 4211 Advanced Calculus (3 credits)
  • MAS 4301 Algebraic Structures (3 credits)
  • STA 4321 Mathematical Statistics I (3 credits)
  • MAT 4934 Senior Seminar (1 credit)

It is important to take STA 4321 and MAA 3200 as soon as possible after MAC 2313 (note that many courses have MAA 3200 as a prerequisite). Majors should then take MAA 4211 and MAS 4301 as soon as possible. Students should consider taking MAD 2014 or MAS 3105 before MAA 3200.

In addition, three courses from each of the the following lists:

List 1

  • MAD 4203 Introduction to Combinatorics (3 credits)
  • MAA 4402 Complex Variables (3 credits)
  • MTG 3212 College Geometry (3 credits)
  • MAS 4213 Number Theory (3 credits)
  • MAA 4212 Topics in Advanced Calculus (3 credits)
  • MAS 4302 Topics in Algebraic Structures (3 credits)
  • MTG 4302 Topology (3 credits)

List 2

  • MAP 4401 Advanced Differential Equations (3 credits)
  • MAD 3305 Graph Theory (3 credits)
  • MAP 3103 Mathematical Modeling (3 credits)
  • STA 4322 Mathematical Statistics II (3 credits)
  • MAD 3401 Numerical Analysis (3 credits)
  • MHF 4302 Mathematical Logic (3 credits)
  • MHF 4102 Axiomatic Set Theory (3 credits)

Electives

The balance of the 60 semester hour requirement for graduation may be chosen from any courses in the University approved by the student's advisor.

The following courses are not acceptable for credit toward graduation, unless a student has passed the course before declaring a Mathematics major: MAC 2233, STA 1013, STA 3122-23, STA 2023, and QMB 3150 (College of Business Administration).
