Academic Offerings

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.

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:

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.

Bachelor of Science 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.

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

Statistics Minor

Eighteen semester hours are required in mathematics or statistics, including at least three semester hours in a calculus course (MATH 126 or MATH 151). At least 12 of the 18 hours must be in statistics.
