Winthrop University: Majors and More - Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

Majors and More


Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics program is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of mathematics and its sub-fields and to give students the opportunity to master advanced material in mathematics and allied disciplines.  This program requires additional mathematics courses beyond those required for the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics programs and thus offers students the ability to explore advanced topics in mathematics more extensively.  This program allows students to pursue internships, individualized independent study, and undergraduate research with faculty members.  This program equips students to follow a variety of post-college paths and is specifically designed to prepare students for graduate work in mathematics.  Graduates of this program typically pursue further education at graduate schools in mathematics and allied disciplines, teach in post-secondary settings, or hold responsible positions in businesses and governmental agencies.

Foreign Language Requirement  


General Electives  




 ^Students completing the required program for the BS degree in mathematics must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language at or above the second semester college level. This requirement may be met by a satisfactory score on a recognized examination or by passing any foreign language course numbered 102 or any course with 102 as a prerequisite. 

**A grade of C- or better is required.

The student must complete a minimum of 12 semester hours of MATH courses in residence at Winthrop University. No more than three hours of Academic Internship in Mathematics (MATH 461 or 463) can count toward the major.
