Mathematics Major and Minor Requirements

**Department: **Mathematics and Computing

**Department Chair **R. Beasley

**Department Members: **R. Beasley, J. Boardman, D. Callon, P. Fonstad, J. Gash, S. Hoehn, K. Smith, A. Walls

**Majors**: Actuarial Science, Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, Quantitative Analysis

**Minors: **Mathematics, Quantitative Methods

Courses and majors in mathematics and computing are designed to provide students with fundamental knowledge of and facility with concepts and processes in mathematics and computing and to help develop interpersonal and lifetime learning skills so that they can adapt to new challenges and situations in their personal and professional lives. The department seeks to promote active learning in the classroom through the implementation of cooperative learning, discovery learning, and the incorporation of technology in a variety of hands-on experiences.

All required courses for a major or minor in mathematics or computing, including all related field and prerequisite requirements, must be completed with a *C-* or better. Prerequisites for non-majors must also be completed with a *C-*or better. Education students should consult that department for minimum requirements.

**Majors in Mathematics
**Students who pursue a major in mathematics may select one or more of the following curricular programs: pure mathematics, applied mathematics, actuarial science, and quantitative analysis. A 3+2 engineering program is also available in computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. See the engineering section of this catalog for further details.

** Cooperative Program in Engineering (Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering)**Franklin College maintains a cooperative “3+2” program in engineering with the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. Students in this program will earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Applied Mathematics at Franklin College, and then a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering through the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI.

Students opting to pursue the degree programs in Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering will major in Applied Mathematics at Franklin College and follow the Applied Mathematics course of study given above. Some course substitutions and choices of electives are necessary to complete the engineering portion of the program; details of these and other aspects of the cooperative program can be found in the Engineering section of the catalog.
