Mathematics, BA

Degree: Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Major: Mathematics


Program Overview

All undergraduate degrees in the department are based on a four-course sequence in calculus and differential equations and have a computational component. The mathematics and applied mathematics degrees all require further mathematics courses in analysis and algebra. The statistics degrees all require a further statistics core.  The applied mathematics program has a four-course professional core requirement to promote the understanding of how mathematics is applied in other fields. There are additional requirements particular to each degree program, including technical electives in the major. Each degree program requires a minimum of 120 credit hours. 

Teacher Licensure

This program offers a special option for undergraduate students who wish to pursue this major and a career in teaching. The Teacher Education Program prepares CWRU students to receive an Ohio Teaching License for grades K-12 (Multi-Age) or grades 7-12 (Adolescent to Young Adult (AYA)) depending on major area of study. Students declare a second major in education—which involves 36 hours in education and practicum requirements—and complete a planned sequence of major content coursework within the context of this major. The program is designed to offer several unique features not found in other programs and to place students in mentored teaching situations throughout their teacher preparation career. This small, rigorous program is designed to capitalize on the strengths of CWRU’s departments, its Teacher Education Program, and the relationships the university has built with area schools.
