Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Major in Applied Mathematics
Minimum required: 120 semester credit hours
General Requirements
- The general education core curriculum courses are listed in the degree plan below along with the statewide component code number. See the General Education Core Curriculum section of this catalog for the Texas State requirements and options in the core curriculum, including Honors courses.
- Students must complete a minimum of 36 advanced hours (3000 or 4000 level courses).
- Students must select a minor from the approved list of Undergraduate Minors.
- Nine semester credit hours must be writing intensive (WI).
- If two years of the same language are taken in high school, then no additional language hours will be required for the degree. In the absence of such high school language, two semesters of the same modern language must be taken at the college level.
- Students entering Texas State with fewer than 16 credit hours completed after high school graduation will be required to take US 1100. All others will be exempt from taking this course. Students may be required to earn an additional elective to reach the 120 minimum total credit hour requirement for the awarding of a degree.

- ^{ 1 }
Even though MATH 2471 is the first required mathematics course, some students will need to take courses numbered below 2471. Credit examinations in MATH 1315, MATH 2417, and MATH 2471 are available.
- ^{ 2 }
Only one of MATH 3376 or MATH 3377 may be taken for credit. For this degree program, MATH 3376 is the preferred alternative.
