B.A. in Mathematics
The
B.A. is designed specifically for future teachers and requires MTH 363 Modern
Geometry.
The curriculum for the B.A. degree in
mathematics differs only slightly from the curriculum for the B.S. The capstone
is fulfilled by student teaching.
A prospective teacher may opt for the B.S. curriculum and choose Modern Geometry
as an elective. The B.A. curriculum is as follows:
