    Mathematics, BS

    Program Information:
    The program of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics offers formal training in problem solving, critical and quantitative thinking and logical argument. With these highly employer-valued skills, the B.S. in Mathematics is intended for students deeply interested in mathematics and wishing to pursue a career in a mathematical field or graduate study.

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Mathematics degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.) 

    This program of study begins in the fall semester.

    Milestones/Notes:

    1. Must earn a grade of "C" or better in coursework.
    2. Not all courses are offered every semester.
    3. See KSU online Catalog or departmental website for pre-requisite(s) or course descriptions.

    In Guided Electives:

    Science Requirement - If not fulfilled in Area D, then coursework must be completed as Guided Electives.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
