Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics

Rutgers-Camden offers two comprehensive undergraduate degree programs in the mathematical sciences:

  • Mathematics
    This program is for students looking for a traditional mathematics curriculum.
  • Applied and Computational Mathematics
    This program is for students with an interest in mathematics and computer science and in the overlapping disciplines of biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics.

 

Requirements

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:

  • 50:640:252 Linear Algebra (instead of 50:640:250 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: 

Course Order

Our curriculum contains integrated sequences of courses that should be taken in the proper order. Students should follow the recommended sequence of courses.  View recommended course order for our Mathematics and Applied and Computational Mathematics programs.

In particular, all students should take Theory of Numbers before taking Modern Algebra I. Students should take Mathematical Reasoning with Proofs as soon as possible after finishing two semesters of calculus.
