B.S. in Mathematics
We are pleased to offer a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. You may complete this program from your computer at home or in the office, anywhere in the world.
Students who have their general education courses completed can graduate in two years or less. "One of the strengths of our new program is its flexibility and the high earning potential for graduates" says Dr. Markus Pomper, Chair of the Mathematics Department. "Students who have earned 60 or more credits from another institution may complete this degree in two years or less and never set foot on campus. We will work with students and design an individual degree completion plan that takes into consideration all coursework from other institutions."
The program is taught by award-winning faculty who are fervent about teaching and research. The school's comprehensive online mathematics program begins with common core of courses which includes calculus. Electives within the major allows students to choose an area of specialization, such as financial mathematics or pure mathematics.
A bachelor’s degree in Mathematics offers students a variety of career choices. Many of our graduates seek a career in teaching at the high school or community college level. Others choose to specialize in probability, finance and economics and find rewarding careers in actuarial science.
The B.S. in Mathematics requires 45 credit hours in mathematics. The common core consists of 27 credit hours in Calculus, Linear Algebra, Modern Algebra, Real Analysis and Mathematical Modeling. The remaining classes are largely electives within Mathematics and must be chosen after discussion with your advisor. Students who plan a career in actuarial sciences may choose some finance and economics courses to meet these requirements. We recommend this plan of study for all students who wish to pursue actuarial sciences or graduate studies in mathematics.
Completion Program Curriculum
This is a sample program. You will not need to retake any classes which qualify for transfer credit from other institutions. This program assumes that you have taken Calculus I and II at another institution. You may take these courses at IU East, but this makes it difficult to complete the program in two years.
