Mathematics contributes in a unique way to the development of
the disciplined, rational person. It improves one’s ability to
fit new concepts into a framework of existing knowledge.
Saint Martin’s University provides a basic undergraduate
program for mathematics majors, supports other majors in the
University and offers courses of general interest.
The Mathematics Program requires students who have no record
of successful completion (grade of "C-" or better) of a
necessary prerequisite to take the Mathematics Placement Exam.
The Mathematics Placement Exam will identify the course
number(s) of the introductory math course(s) for which the
student is best prepared.
A recommendation of a course by the Mathematics Placement
Exam will be considered "an equivalent math placement exam
score" in determining prerequisites. Note, however, that a
student cannot earn academic credit through the results of the
Mathematics Placement Exam.
Students must receive a minimum grade of "C-" in all degree
requirements, with the GPA for these courses no lower than 2.33,
to graduate with a mathematics degree or minor.
