Why Choose the Mathematics Program?

The mathematics component of the Bachelor of Arts program surveys the classical areas of mathematicsanalysis, algebra, and geometryand their history. Courses in statistics and in computer science provide a taste of two relatively young branches of the mathematical sciences. In addition, a broad choice of electives allows one to either pursue greater depth in one of these areas, or to sample a broader range of courses in mathematics, statistics, and computing.

The Bachelor of Arts program features breadth and flexibility. For instance, there is a Related Course Requirement specifically designed to accommodate subject matter outside the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and even outside both the College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Other elective courses can be chosen with essentially no restriction. To examine the remarkable variety of possibilities, see the Wright State University Undergraduate Catalog; listed there are hundreds of courses which can be selected by students in this program.

Students must apply for admission to Wright State University.

Declaring your Major

Students who intend to enter into the Mathematics Bachelor of Arts degree program but do not meet the criteria to be directly admitted from high school will be admitted as a PRE major. Once the student has satisfied the following criteria, they can be admitted into the Mathematics Bachelor of Arts degree program:

  • Earned a grade of “C” or higher in the following courses: BIO 1120, BIO 1120L, CHM 1210, and CHM 1210L.
  • Completion of at least 15 semester hours with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8.

Current students at Wright State University who are interested in adding or changing their major can also be admitted into the Mathematics Bachelor of Arts degree program by meeting the above criteria.
