Our Undegraduate Programs

The Department of Mathematics offers the following majors and minors in the undergraduate studies:

- BA or BS in Mathematics
- BA or BS in Applied Mathematics
- BA or BS in Statistics

Students can find additional support for their studies in the

Monday 3:00pm-4:30pm: Israa, Marwa

Tuesday 3:00pm-4:30pm: Talal, Sasha

Wednesday 3:00pm-4:30pm: Batoul, Razan

Thursday 3:00pm-4:30pm: Ghia, Fatima D.

Friday 3:00pm-4:30pm: Raydan, Fatima B.

- Our majors are running a mathematical community to discuss and share insight and experience related to the field. Join the society and make sure to follow AUB Mathematics Student Society on Instagram.

The following details on programs and courses are based on the official information which can be the found in the
AUB catalogue.

The department requires **39 credits in the field**: MATH 201, MATH 210, MATH 214, MATH 219, MATH 223, MATH 227, STAT 233, MATH 241, and at least one of MATH 220 or MATH 242, in addition to 12 more credits chosen from MATH 202 and mathematics courses numbered 213 or above. Note that MATH 211

and MATH 212 do not count towards the major course requirements for the BS and BA

in Mathematics; however, these courses may be taken as free electives.

A transfer student who has done well in MATH 218 (resp. STAT 230) can count it toward the Mathematics

Major instead of MATH 219 (resp. STAT 233), subject to departmental approval.

For General Education requirements, please visit: BA in Mathematics, BS in Mathematics

Students wishing to pursue **graduate study in Mathematics** are strongly urged to take MATH 220, MATH 224 and MATH 242. They are also encouraged to take one or more graduate course in their senior year.

Students interested in **Applied Mathematics or in joining the job market (consulting, banking, finance,...)** should take MATH 202, MATH 220, MATH 224, MATH 251, and STAT 234, and to choose their electives with a significant component of mathematical and computational techniques.

Students interested in t**eaching in high school** are encouraged to include MATH 202, MATH 213 or MATH 215, MATH 251, and MATH 261 among their course

A **Minor in Mathematics** requires 18 credits, namely MATH 201, MATH 210, MATH 218 or MATH 219, and 9 more credits in MATH courses numbered MATH 202, MATH 211 or above, or STAT courses numbered STAT 230 or above.

The department requires

- Analysis and Geometry: MATH 213, MATH 214, MATH 215, MATH 224, MATH 225, MATH 227
- Discrete Math and Algebra: MATH 211, MATH 220, MATH 241, MATH 242, MATH 261
- Probability and Statistics: STAT 231, STAT 234 or higher

For General Education requirements, please visit: BA in Applied Mathematics, BS in Applied Mathematics

Moreover, **Track elective credits** must be chosen in one applied discipline from the following list (details in BA in Applied Mathematics, BS in Applied Mathematics):

- Actuarial Science

- Computer Science
- Economics
- Engineering
- Natural Sciences
- Statistics and Applications (Data Science)

A **Minor in Applied Mathematics** requires 18 credits, namely MATH 201, MATH 210, MATH 218 or MATH 219, and 9 more credits in MATH courses numbered MATH 202, MATH 211 or above, or STAT courses numbered STAT 230 or above.

For General Education requirements, please visit: BA in Statistics, BS in Statistics

**Actuarial Science** are advised to take their Track electives as MATH 272, MATH 273, and MATH 274. Note that, students planning to pursue a career of an **Actuary** have to pass a sequence of professional exams and complete VEE credits (Validation for Educational Experience). Thus, they are also advised to take the following courses within their degree requirements: ECON 211, ECON 212; and the following additional courses above the required 90 credits: BUSS 211, ACTN 210, FINA 210, FINA 220.

Students interested in**Data Science** are advised to take their track electives as EECE 490 and EECE 693 and at least one course from: CMPS 202 or EECE 330, CMPS 261, EECE 641, BUSS 200, MNGT 222, DCSN 200, DCSN 216. They are also advised to take STAT 236 and STAT 237 within their degree requirements.

Moreover, **Track elective credits**
must be chosen in applied discipline from the following list (details in BA in Statistics, BS in Statistics):

- Actuarial Science
- Business
- Computer Science
- Engineering
- Mathematics

Students interested in

A **Minor in Statistics** can be pursued via one of two options:
