Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The mathematics program at IU Southeast is similar to those at other IU campuses. Beyond the general requirements for the bachelor of arts degree, mathematics majors are required to take the following courses: Three semesters of Calculus, a course in Linear Algebra, a course in Probability Theory, a course in the Foundations of the Number Systems and two semesters of courses at the 400 level (Analysis, Modern Algebra, or Topology).

Students are also required to take one additional course in mathematics, such as Differential Equations or Statistics. Students are strongly recommended to take electives in areas related to mathematics, such as computer science, chemistry, physics or education courses leading to teaching certification.

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics requires three semesters of Calculus, a course in Linear Algebra, a course in Probability Theory, the course Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning, a 400-level two-course sequence in Modern Algebra or Introductory Analysis, a Senior Thesis course, and four additional mathematics electives at the 300 or 400-level. The B.S. in Mathematics also requires a course in biology, a sequence in calculus-based physics or in chemistry, and a two-course sequence in computer science.

Double Degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science

The B.S. degree in computer science (mathematics/ science option) is quite similar to the B.S. in mathematics. Since this degree require a significant number of the required courses in the mathematics degree, it is quite easy to obtain double degrees in mathematics and computer science.

Double Degrees in Mathematics and Education

The B.S. degree in secondary education (teaching major in mathematics) is quite similar to the B.S. in mathematics. Since this degree requires a significant number of the required courses in the mathematics degree, it is quite easy to obtain double degrees in mathematics and education.

Minor in Mathematics

The requirements for the minor in mathematics are three semesters of Calculus and one additional course in Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, or Probability. These requirements are easily combined with degrees in computer science or education.
