The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a broad curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Concentrations in Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Secondary Education, as well as a collaborative program with Virginia Tech in engineering, are available. Depending upon the particular course of study taken, the student will be prepared for a career in industry, government, or education.

- Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics
- Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
- Mathematics and Statistics Collaborative Program in Engineering with Virginia Tech
- Mathematics Minor
- Statistics Minor

To graduate with a major in Mathematics, a student must have a grade point average of 2.0 or higher in all required MATH, STAT, ITEC, and PHYS courses for the Applied Mathematics Concentration; MATH, STAT and ITEC courses for the Statistics Concentration; MATH and STAT courses for Secondary Education.

## Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The major is available with a choice of three concentrations: Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Secondary Education. The Bachelor of Arts degree requires completion of the B.A. language requirements described in the course catalog.

### Requirements

**Core Curriculum (43-45 credits).**

*Three hours of mathematics courses required for the major may be included as part of the 43-45 hour Core Curriculum requirement.*

**Required Courses (18 credits)**

All majors in mathematics must take:

- MATH 151 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry I
- MATH 152 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry II
- MATH 251 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry III
- MATH 252 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry IV
- MATH 260 - Introductory Linear Algebra
- STAT 301 - Probability and Statistics I

Notes: A grade of at least a “C” is required in each course in the calculus sequence. Any departmental majors receiving credit for MATH 252 cannot subsequently receive credit for any 100-level mathematics course unless the course is required for their concentration.

## Mathematics and Statistics Collaborative Program in Engineering

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Radford University and the College of Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) offer a joint program in mathematics and engineering.

## Mathematics Minor

The Mathematics Minor is an 18 semester hour program. The following courses are required:

- MATH 151 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry I
- MATH 152 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry II
- MATH 251 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry III
- MATH 260 - Introductory Linear Algebra

and at least two courses chosen from among

- MATH 252 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry IV
- MATH 300 - Mathematical Foundations
- MATH 321 - History of Mathematics
- MATH 346 - Differential Equations
- any 400-level mathematics course or any 300 or 400-level statistics course.
