The Department of Mathematics offers a BS degree in Mathematics, with an emphasis on the theoretical and computational skills needed to solve 21st century problems in mathematics, science, and engineering. To learn more about the degree and the department, visit https://www.sdsmt.edu/math/.
The following shows one example of a path towards the Mathematics degree. Students can tailor their degree with a variety of electives to meet their areas of interest and emphasis. Students in the program will work with their advisor for a more personalized course of study designed to help them meet their professional or academic goals. Students are responsible for checking with their advisors for any program modifications that may occur after the publication of this catalog.
- MATH Sequence Elective Credits: 3 3
- MATH Upper-Level Elective Credits: 3 4
- Free Elective(s) Credits: 9
120 credits required for graduation
All baccalaureate degrees must satisfy the general education requirements mandated by the Board of Regents; see the General Education Requirements in this catalog. Additionally, students earning a Mathematics degree must have a departmental grade point average of at least 2.00 in all mathematics courses 300-level or higher.
Course requirements for the program also include the total number of credits per course. Any student that transfers a course that is approved for transfer will fulfill the course requirement, but if the transferred course does not meet the total credit hour requirement then the program committee will decide on the proper accommodation for meeting the credit requirement. Students should consult with their advisor to get clarification on the necessary accommodation.
None of the following classes may be counted towards the Mathematics degree: CHEM 106 , CSC 105 , MATH 021 , MATH 101 , MATH 114 , MATH 116/116L , MATH 120 , PHYS 111 , and PHYS 113 .
Students should work with their advisors to customize their elective credits, especially free electives, to meet their academic and professional goals. This might include pursuing a minor or technical specialization.
1 Fulfills General Education requirement. This includes include 6 hours in Humanities (in two disciplines or in a sequence of foreign language courses) and 6 hours in Social Sciences (in two disciplines) to fulfill the Board of Regents General Education Requirements. Students should consult the “Bachelor of Science General Education Requirements ” section of this catalog for a complete listing of all general education requirements.
