### Mathematics and Statistics Department

### BA - Mathematics

The BA - Mathematics is recommended for students who enjoy problem solving and would like to apply problem solving skills along with communication and analyzing skills in a future career. This degree also provides an excellent background for graduate work in mathematics and other disciplines including law and medicine as well as engineering and science.

33 upper division units of mathematics and computer science are required for this degree. If upper division requirements are satisfied using transferred lower division courses, then additional upper division math courses will need to be taken to obtain the required number of upper division units.

A grade of "C-" or better is required for courses being used to meet any requirement in this major, including courses in preparation for the major.
