Stockton’s mathematics program offers B.A. and B.S. degrees with several tracks. Students are encouraged to take both pure and applied mathematics courses. The program offers weekly seminars with presenters from other colleges, industries, alumni as well as presenters from the Stockton community including students. Faculty offer independent study projects for students who want to focus on a particular area or specialty.
- Most courses taught by full-time faculty
- All program faculty hold doctoral degrees from highly reputed institutions
- Small class sizes
- Opportunity for one-on-one assistance
- Math majors have program faculty as academic advisors
- Graduates pursue advanced study, K-12 teaching, actuarial science and employment in private sector and government
In addition to the College’s general education requirements, MATH majors are expected to complete the following courses.
The BS requires 80 credits in Core Courses. The BA requires 64 credits in Core Courses. These courses include: Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, Linear Algebra, Foundations of Mathematics, Differential Equations, Physics I and Physics II, and Programming and Problem Solving I.
Mathematics majors are also required to complete two semesters of MATH 4600, Mathematics Seminar, and four of the following 10 advanced courses with at least one form Group I and one from Group II:
|Group I||Group II|
|Advanced Calculus||Probability and Statistics I|
|Complex Analysis||Probability and Statistics II|
|Algebraic Structures||Numerical Analysis|
|Modern Geometry||Computer Algorithms|
|Theory of Computation|
|Topics in Mathematics*||Topics in Mathematics*|
*Depends on the topic
Additionally, Mathematics Majors are required to complete elective mathematics and sciences cognate courses. This typically consists of five courses (for a Bachelor of Science degree) or two courses (a for Bachelor of Arts degree).
Students may elect from four concentrations in MATH: Actuarial Science, Graduate School Preparation, Computer Science and Secondary Education.
Depending on selected concentration, students select additional courses to fulfill degree from a list of recommended courses that include: Mathematics of Finance, Advanced Calculus, Discrete Mathematics, Algebraic Structures, Modern Geometry, Probability and Statistics I, Probability and Statistics II, Intermediate Microeconomics Theory, Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory, Introduction to Financial Management, Differential Equations, Complex Analysis, Programming and Problem Solving II, Foundations of Computer Science, Data Structures, Biodiversity and Evolution, Chemistry I, and Chemistry II.
See the Stockton College Bulletin for more information regarding MATH major concentrations and the MATH minor.
