# Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) Major in 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.
- In addition to the general education core curriculum requirements, the Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) requires three additional hours of English literature, three hours of math/science/logic/computer science courses, a minor and six hours of 2000-level modern language courses. Most students will have to complete 1410 and 1420 as prerequisites before attempting 2310.
- Nine hours of writing intensive (WI) courses are required for graduation.
- Majors must select a minor from the approved list of Undergraduate Minors.
- Majors must complete a minimum of 36 advanced hours (3000 or 4000 level courses).
- The minimum number of hours required for this degree program is 120. The number of free elective hours a student will complete depends on the number of hours a student may need to achieve the required 120 total or 36 advanced hours.
- If two years of the same modern 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.
