# Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Arts degree program in Mathematics is designed for the student who, upon graduation, will begin a career involving mathematics or plans to pursue graduate studies in mathematics, and is interested in augmenting their foundational mathematics curriculum with a minor in another field or studies in other subjects.

The B.A. in Mathematics requires a total of 55-58 units of coursework; of those, up to 6 units may be selected from courses that count towards the University's General Education requirements in categories A3 and B4, and one course (MATH 3100) counts toward the upper-division writing intensive requirement.

Students pursuing a career in education are strongly encouraged to consult a faculty advisor when selecting their elective coursework (Math 3345, Math 3460, Math 2900, and Math 4900 should be included).

**Requirements (55-58 units)**

**Total units required for graduation: 120**
