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

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.
