Admission requirements for the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in Mathematics are identical to those currently outlined for admission to a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree in St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
For more information about admission to this and other acclaimed undergraduate programs at St. John’s University, please visit Undergraduate Admission.
To earn your B.A. in Mathematics, you complete a total of 120 credits in core, major, and elective requirements. The major requirements are outlined below.
Please note that Mathematics majors may satisfy their science core requirement by taking PHY 1610, 1620, 1930, or 1940. The distributed core requirement for Mathematics is met by the major.
Mathematicians find employment in almost every sector of today’s high-tech economy. They teach, assess financial risk, measure, and interpret data and find ways to transform natural resources. Their work also is vital to ensuring the safety of computer systems and even helping to sustain the environment. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that jobs for mathematicians will rise 16 percent over the next eight years.
