The Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics offers both breadth and depth in mathematical preparation appropriate for graduate study or work in a variety of fields. The requirements for the major in mathematics include both theoretical and applied courses. Students should plan with their advisors as they select courses appropriate to their interests and educational goals.
Students declaring a mathematics major are required to have a 2.3 cumulative GPA in the sophomore core mathematics sequences (MATH 201, or MATH 204, MATH 221, MATH 241). In order for students to maintain satisfactory progress toward graduation in four years, students should have successfully completed MATH 201, or MATH 204, MATH 221, and MATH 241 by the end of their sophomore year. In order for transfer students to graduate in two years after matriculation to the University of Redlands, they need to have completed the Calculus sequence (I, II, and III) and Linear Algebra prior to transferring to Redlands; additionally, a course in discrete mathematics or introduction to proofs is highly recommended.
A minor in mathematics consists of six courses:
• MATH 121 Calculus I
• MATH 122 Calculus II
• MATH 221 Calculus III
At least one course from
• MATH 201 Discrete Mathematical Structures
• MATH 204 Conjecture and Proof in Discrete Mathematics
• MATH 241 Linear Algebra
• MATH 300 level and above
Two additional courses from
• MATH 201 and above, to include at most one of MATH 208, MATH 212, MATH 231.
