### 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.

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

*University Graduation Requirements*

Students must complete all residency, curriculum, unit, and GPA requirements as outlined in the Graduation Requirements section of the Policies and Procedures.

*4-Year Program Roadmap*

Students may find a roadmap for this program here. Roadmaps should be used in consultation with the catalog and your advisor to identify additional requirements for completing the major (for example, course grade minimums). Associate Transfer Degrees (ADT) pathway roadmaps can be found here.

*Major-Specific Graduation Requirements*

All courses in the Preparation and Required in the Major must be completed with a grade of "C- or better", and the following Preparation for the Major course with a grade of "C or better": MATH 100W

Course Requirements | ||||||

University Graduation Requirements | 47 | |||||

Core Lower Division General Education | 30 | |||||

Of the 39 units required by the university, 9 units may be satisfied by coursework outlined below. Courses that meet GE Areas A1, A2, A3 or B4 must be passed with a "C-" or better to meet the requirement. Consult with major advisor for details. | ||||||

Note: Students who have completed the ADT Transfer Degree (under SB 1440) for this major will have completed all Lower Division GE Requirements and should follow the 60 unit guarantee roadmap. Meet with an advisor prior to registering for your first semester for the 60 unit roadmap or specific questions. | ||||||

Upper Division General Education | 9 | |||||

Of the 9 units required by the university, 0 units may be satisfied by coursework outlined below. Consult with major advisor for details. | ||||||

American Institutions | 6 | |||||

The 6 units of American Institutions (US123) coursework shown below also fulfills GE Areas D2 and D3. Other courses meet the American Institutions requirement, but may not include additional GE areas. The American Studies (AMS 1A/B) and Humanities Honors (HUM 1A/B, 2A/B) programs both offer larger integrated packages that meet this requirement. Consult with major advisor for details. | ||||||
