Bachelor of Science

Summary of Requirements for the Degree

  1. University Requirements (123 total s.h.)
    • MATH 0701 (4 s.h.) and/or ENG 0701 (4 s.h.), if required by placement testing.
    • All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses at Temple as part of their major. Following is a list of courses that can be used to satisfy the writing-intensive requirement:
      MATH 3096Introduction to Modern Algebra3
      or MATH 3098 Modern Algebra
      MATH 4096Senior Problem Solving3
    • Students must complete the General Education (GenEd) requirements.
      • See the General Education section of the Undergraduate Bulletin for the GenEd curriculum.
      • Students who complete CST majors typically receive a waiver for 2 Science & Technology (GS) and 1 Quantitative Literacy (GQ) GenEd courses.
    • Students must satisfy general Temple University residency requirements.
  2. College Requirements

    • 90 credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST) or the College of Liberal Arts (CLA).
    • 45 Upper-Level (2000+) credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST) or the College of Liberal Arts (CLA).
    • First Year Seminar Requirement: All students in the College of Science & Technology (CST) are required to take a 1 credit first year seminar course, SCTC 1001 CST First Year Seminar. Other courses that fulfill this requirement may be found on the CST College Requirements page. Only one course in this category may count towards graduation.

Calculation of Major GPA

Courses listed under the major requirements for the degree will be included in the calculation of the major GPA. Courses that could not apply toward the major as an elective or required course would not be counted in the calculation of the major GPA. This would include MATH 1022, for example.

Distinction in Major

To graduate with Distinction in Applied Mathematics a student should meet the following requirements:

  1. All requirements for the degree in Applied Mathematics must be met with a GPA of at least 3.50 in the Mathematics courses.
  2. At the time of graduation, the student's overall GPA, including all college-level courses, must be at least 3.25.
  3. Students must complete MATH 3098 instead of MATH 3096 in order to qualify for a Distinction in Major.
  4. A student must have a GPA of 3.50 or higher in MATH 3141, MATH 3142, MATH 3098, MATH 4051 and any additional courses from the following list:
    MATH 3043Numerical Analysis I4
    MATH 3044Numerical Analysis II3
    MATH 3101Topics in Modern Algebra3
