Lander's mathematics curriculum offers a great deal of flexibility, centering on a core of math courses that are balanced with a mix of liberal arts classes, math electives and general electives.
As a math major, you will build a solid foundation in calculus, differential equations and fundamentals of logic before progressing to studies in linear and abstract algebra, mathematical analysis and statistics. You can use your major electives to explore geometry, complex analysis or the history of mathematics.
Mathematics Honors Program
Students majoring in mathematics may earn a "BS Degree with Honors" in mathematics. To qualify, a student must meet the following conditions:
NOTE: In lieu of requirement 1 above, the student may complete an engineering degree at Clemson University under the engineering/mathematics dualdegree program. The student may then substitute an approved engineering project at Clemson for requirement 3 above.
Special situations may require a deviation from these requirements (such as for students seeking teacher certification in mathematics or those in the engineering program). All deviations must be approved by a majority of the mathematics faculty.
Transfer students who wish to pursue an Honors Program in Mathematics must spend at least four fulltime semesters (fall or spring) at Lander University and complete at least 21 semester hours of mathematics courses at Lander University. They must also have an overall GPA of 3.5 on all courses transferred and a GPA of 3.5 on mathematics courses transferred.
