B.A. in Mathematics Requirements

Home » Undergraduate Education » College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) » Mathematics » B.A. in Mathematics Requirements

Group 1. General Education Basic, Area, and Integrative Requirements in effect Fall 2011

Students may choose to graduate under the General Education Basic, Area, and Integrative requirements and graduation requirements in force at the time they entered the UH System, when they entered UH Hilo, or when they graduate, provided there is no break in enrollment lasting longer than one semester.

Students should meet with their academic advisor to ensure that they enroll in courses that will enable them to meet these requirements as well as requirements for the major and for graduation. Some courses may meet both General Education requirements and major requirements.

The new GE basic, core, and integrative requirements and lists of certified courses are posted at hilo.hawaii.edu/academics/gened/.

  2. Students must earn at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA in courses required for the major.
  3. At least 45 semester hours must be earned in courses at the 300–400-level.
  4. To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics, students must fulfill the requirements for the major and meet all of the University’s other baccalaureate degree requirements. (Please see the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements in this Catalog.)
  5. Students should always check course prerequisites and the frequency with which courses are offered.
  6. To ensure progress toward degree completion, students are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor each semester before registering.
