The major in Mathematics is based on the program recommended by the Mathematical Association of America. It is designed to prepare students for either a career in mathematics or a mathematics-related field, or to continue their studies in graduate school. We encourage undergraduate research experiences and/or industry internships to help our students prepare for their postgraduate careers.
Requirements for Graduation:
To be eligible for graduation, students majoring in Mathematics must complete a minimum of 120 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0, satisfy the College’s residency requirements, and complete the General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. Courses used to complete General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.
The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete a First Year Seminar, Foundations (FCO 103 will be a required co-requisite with FCO 105 for students who have a high school GPA below 3.20), Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation. Transfer students that are awarded 60 or more credits upon acceptance to York College will not be required to complete a Constellation.
In addition, students majoring in Mathematics must earn a 2.0 or greater in all major courses.
