Requirements for the B.A. in Mathematics

Requirements for the B.A. in Mathematics

For students who entered KU Summer 2013 or earlier.

A total of 120 hours is required to graduate with a B.A. in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The general education requirements are set by the College, and account for approximately 66 credits (not counting mathematics courses). The B.A. in Mathematics requires 30 credits of mathematics courses. The remaining credits are electives.

Mathematics Courses (30 credits)

  1. Calculus: through MATH 223 (13 credits)
  2. Linear Algebra: MATH 290 and 590, or 790 (5 credits)
  3. Analysis: MATH 500 or 765 (3 credits)
  4. One Sequence from List AB (6 credits)
  5. One or more electives, as needed, to bring up to 15 the total credit hours in mathematics courses numbered 300 and above (excluding Math 365 and Math 409)

MATH 143 (5 credits) may be substituted for MATH 223 and MATH 290.
