Program of Study
To complete the ETSU Honors-in-Discipline Mathematics Program, a student must complete the 120 semester hours of work required for a B.S. in Mathematics. The courses consist of
- 41-42 credit hours of general education requirements,
- 8-10 credit hours of natural science,
- 19 credit hours of core math classes, 24 credit hours of mathematics classes chosen from a specific mathematics concentration (Mathematical Sciences, Statistics, Computational Applied Mathematics, or Mathematics Education),
- 3 credit hours of capstone (MATH 4010), and
- at least 18 credit hours of these classes must consist of honors math classes - 12 to 15 credit hours will be math classes which are "honors enriched" and 3 to 6 credit hours will be Honors Thesis (MATH 4018).
A math major must complete the mathematics core requirements and then select one of four concentrations: mathematical sciences, statistics, computational applied mathematics, or mathematics education. Students planning to teach mathematics at the secondary level may choose the education concentration. In addition, such students must complete professional education requirements for secondary education students. Students planning to pursue careers in industry or a field that utilizes statistics should choose the statistics concentration, while those desiring a job in research or industry utilizing areas of mathematics other than statistics should choose the computational applied mathematics concentration. Those intending to pursue a graduate degree in mathematics should choose the mathematical sciences concentration.
You should make such plans with input from the Math Honors-in-Discipline coordinator and make sure that the coordinator has an up-to-date copy of your program of study.
