Mathematics, BA

The mathematics program offers students preparation for graduate study, careers in teaching, scientific computing, and technology-related industry. While offering a basic grounding in the classical areas of mathematics, the curriculum also emphasizes applied mathematics and its constantly evolving role in analyzing and solving problems in fields ranging from economics to aerodynamics to the environment.

Electives for B.A.

A minimum of 8 semester hours in upper-division mathematics courses.

Note: All Mathematics courses being transferred in to fulfill requirements for the Mathematics major must be approved by the Mathematics major must be approved by the Mathematics Program Chair. All courses from community college are, by definition, lower-division and are rarely approved as equivalent to upper-division courses taught at La Verne.
