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.
University Credit Hour & Residency Requirements
All Baccalaureate degrees offered by IU Southeast requires a minimum of 120 credit hours and a minimum of 30 credit hours of upper-level coursework (300-level or above). No more than 64 credit hours earned in accredited junior/community colleges may be applied toward a Baccalaureate degree. The University Residency Requirement dictates that students must complete no less than 26 credit hours at IU Southeast during their senior year and no less than 10 credit hours of coursework in the major field of study.
Department of Mathematics Residency Requirements
The Department of Mathematics enforces the University Credit Hour & Residency Requirements with no additions.
General Education Core Requirements
All IU Southeast Baccalaureate degrees require 30 credit hours of General Education Core coursework. Students must select a course(s) to satisfy each category listed below. View the list of courses that satisfy the General Education Core requirements.
- Information Literacy (1 credit)
- Written Communications I (3 credits)
- Written Communications II (3 credits)
- Oral Communications (3 credits)
- Ethical Reasoning/Diversity (3 credits)
- Natural Sciences (one lecture – 3 credits, one lab – 2 credits)
- Arts/Humanities(3 credits)
- Social Science(3 credits)
- General Education Additional Requirement (Art, Humanities, or Social Science) (3 credits)
Please note that several courses required for your Major may “double dip” with the general education core courses.
