Students earning a B.S. degree with a major in mathematics must complete a minimum of 124 credits. Courses include the University Core Curriculum, and the courses requirements indicated below.  Note: some courses listed below fulfill University Core Curriculum requirements.

University Core Curriculum

All students majoring in BA mathematics must complete the 40 credits of University Core Curriculum with the following restrictions:

Other Required Courses (19 credits)

Electives (27 credits)

  • Plus nine electives

Additional Courses (30 credits)

Additional 30 credits are from the University Core Curriculum.  These 30 credits exclude all courses with a MATH prefix, CSCI 1110, PHYS 11150, and PHIL 2210.

Direct Entry B.S. Mathematics/M.S. Data Science

Application Process:

The direct entry B.S. in Mathematics and M.S. in Data Science degree program is available to qualified students completing their sophomore year of the B.S. in Mathematics program. Students must apply for admission before the fall semester of their junior year of the B.S. program. To qualify, the student must have a cumulative major GPA of at least 3.0 at the time of application to the accelerated program. The student must also submit one letter of recommendation from a University of New Haven Mathematics faculty member.


Students need 151 credits to complete the direct entry program between the B.S. in Mathematics and M.S. in Data Science. These 151 credits include 121 credits for the B.S. in Mathematics and 30 for the M.S. in Data Science. Once enrolled in the direct entry program, students take three graduate Data Science courses during the senior year of the B.S. program. During the fifth year, students complete the M.S. degree by taking the remainder of the required graduate courses.

Students who decide to pursue the direct entry program should select Math Modeling, Optimization, Linear Algebra II, Probability and Statistics II, or any other course approved by the department as Restricted Math Electives and Math Electives on their worksheet for the B.S. in Mathematics.
