Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics

To qualify for a bachelor’s degree of Arts in Mathematics, the student must achieve a grade C or better on all required mathematics classes. In addition, for the bachelor of science a student must take:

  • 50:640:253 Linear Algebra with Applications (instead of 50:640:250 Intro to Linear Algebra) and
  • 50:640:427 Advanced Differential Equations or 50:640:463 Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems

The curriculum worksheets for students entering the math programs before and after Fall 2018 can be found from the links below: 

Master of Science Program 

The graduate program in mathematics offers a master’s degree in Pure Mathematics, Industrial/Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Computer Science or Teaching in Mathematical Sciences.

Learning Outcomes for Mathematical Literacy

This General Education Foundations category addresses the basic mathematical skills that a student needs in order to succeed at Rutgers and to become an informed and empowered citizen. A student fulfills this requirement by passing a mathematics course (640 prefix) at the 100 or higher level. Depending on the course chosen, the student will be able to demonstrate achievement of several of the following goals:

  • Analyze patterns and identify whether the pattern continues and is consistent.
  • Use the symbols of logical analysis to determine whether an argument based upon given premises is valid.
  • Have the ability to apply basic geometric insights relative to distance, area, surface area and volume.
  • Use critical thinking skills comfortably with all operations with real numbers.
  • Understand the properties of   algebra and be able to solve real world applications.
  • Enhance reasoning skills by the study of proofs in geometry.
  • Develop proficiency in the interpretation of information using set analysis applied to data distribution.
  • Mathematically model and then analyze phenomena using techniques from logic, number theory, algebra, and/or calculus.
  • Use group theory and numeration systems to understand the properties that apply to everyday events.
