If you want to be fluent in a universal language, you should consider a mathematics bachelor's degree. At ENMU, we tailor your four-year degree program in mathematics to emphasize theoretical mathematics, applied mathematics, teaching of mathematics, statistics, or industrial mathematics and statistics, depending on your interest area. ENMU has both the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts options available for this degree.
The small class sizes for the mathematics courses you'll take at Eastern will give you the opportunity to really get to know your professors.Our faculty members are invested in your success and you'll receive the personal attention you need to be successful on campus or online. Department of Mathematical Sciences has established a reputable record with respect to student success.
Learning Format for Mathematics Coursework
Our bachelor's in mathematics is designed to be completed 100% online. You'll be completing reading, homework, tests and presentations each semester, with due dates and course schedules depending on what course(s) you take. Mathematics class lectures are recorded and available with Mediasite via Blackboard. Recorded lectures allow you to connect with your professors and other students on your own time, rather than having to be at the computer at a specific time.
When it comes to your general education requirements (that all students in every major have to take), student participation will vary by course and will either be completed at your convenience or you’ll need to be on your computer during the actual class time. Our faculty will help you find the courses that will work best for you and your schedule.
- Course sections where recorded and live lectures via Mediasite connect you with professors and other students on your own time are labeled “AW.”
- Courses where participation with the professor, other online students and students attending the in-person class on campus is required in real-time are labeled, “SW.”
- Courses that are completely online and offered through Blackboard, with no recorded lecture or in-person students are labeled “WW.”
Advising for Mathematics Majors
We are committed to helping you complete your degree as efficiently as possible. As an online student, you can call or email your advisor to set up a meeting. You will likely communicate with your advisor regularly while you are working toward your bachelor's degree, but how you meet with your advisor can be determined by you and your advisor. Our faculty care about your success!
