Mathematics and Physics Unit Degree Options
Pure Mathematics Option (Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts)
Required courses for the major in Pure Mathematics
- Bachelor of Science in Mathematics: Requirements and suggested four-year plan
- Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics: Requirements and suggested four-year plan
Interested students should contact the Mathematics Coordinator, Fariba Bigdeli-Jahed, for further information.
Mathematics/Applied (Pre-Engineering) Option
The Mathematics/Applied (Pre-Engineering) Option is a five-year, double-degree program. Students in this program attend Kentucky State University for three years of study in the pre-engineering area of their choice and then transfer to an engineering degree granting university, such as the University of Kentucky. Upon successful completion of the KSU Applied Math/Pre-Engineering degree requirements, students are awarded the Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics by Kentucky State University. Students are also awarded the Bachelor of Science degree in their selected field of engineering by the engineering degree granting university after completing that institution’s degree requirements.
Required courses for the specific engineering fields
- Pre-Biosystems Engineering: Requirements and Suggested Three-Year Plan
- Pre-Chemical Engineering: Requirements and Suggested Three-Year Plan
- Pre-Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Mining Engineering: Requirements and Suggested Three-Year Plan
- Pre-Material Engineering: Requirements and Suggested Three-Year Plan
Interested students should contact Robert Mania for further information.
Mathematics Education Option
Required courses for the major in Mathematics with specialization in Mathematics Education
KSU students who pursue Mathematics with specialization in Mathematics Education must also meet all other requirements for admission to and completion of the Teacher Education Program. Interested teacher candidates should contact the School of Education or refer to the School of Education section of the KSU Catalogue for more details.
Interested students should contact the Mathematics Education Advisor, Karen Heavin, for further information.
