Mathematics - ARCHIVE

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (MTHBD)

PROFESSOR ROGER F. KNACKE, in charge

This major builds a foundation in mathematics with emphasis on the applications of mathematics and to the development of problem-solving skills. The major has five options that share a common core of mathematics courses for the first two years. The options are Applied Mathematics, Business, Computer Science, General Mathematics, and Mathematics Education Pre-Certification. They allow students to concentrate on developing mathematical skills suitable either for entry level positions in areas including applied mathematics, actuarial sciences, statistics, computer programming, and education, or for graduate studies in mathematics and related fields. Students, with the assistance of a faculty adviser, should select an option in their sophomore year.

For the B.S. degree in Mathematics, a minimum of 120 credits is required. Each student must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course in the major field.
