    Math degree online

    Hi,

    I'm looking to get a Bachelors degree in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics. I'm having a hard time finding places that offer those degrees online. Does anyone have a list? I found a couple but they use the normal college semesters and dont have new classes every month like a lot of the online schools are doing.

    TESC has a blended program. It's a little light on the math end, but it's certainly worth checking out.

    The only ones I know of are UIS (mentioned above), Chadron State College - BS Mathematics, St. Mary of the Woods - Mathematics (this one seems to be flexible & self-paced). Those are the only 3 schools I know of that offer a *real* undergrad math major online, with UIS probably being the best out the 3 as far as class options go.

    At Empire State College you can get a concentration in Applied Mathematics.

    Thomas Edison State College says that they offer the program but

    "some of the classes we don't offer, which would mean that you would have to take those classes (higher level math classes) somewhere else and transfer those back into us."

    Not a huge deal. And the price isnt bad.
    Still looking at some of the others mentioned. I also found ottawa university offers it. Though they look kinda pricey.

    I think that what sentinel is referring to is the fact that the UIS program is a degree completion program. This means that they expect that you will transfer in a substantial number of credits. You can not do the whole degree at UIS. Some people might then go to the LSU Independant Study program

    LSU Independent and Distance Learning

    pick up a bunch of math credits (for a really good price) and then transfer those credits to UIS. Also, the LSU courses have some added appeal because you can either accelerate or decelerate the pace of course completion.

    Others might prefer the Chadron State program because it can be completed 100% at Chadron State.

    Then there's the outlandish people who might actually prefer to earn their Math degree from the University of London (it's not a pure Math program).

    Mathematics and Economics - LSE - University of London International Programmes - Key points

    If money is especially tight you could look at the program offered by UNISA:

    I'm kind of disappointed... I didn't see this thread until other people had already posted all of the programs I know about! And I worked HARD to come up with that list of programs!

    The one at Ottawa is new to me, but I had seen the UALR program before. I'm trying to remember now why I eliminated it from consideration. I think it was because of the cost, but I'm not sure. They make you pay out-of-state tuition if you don't live in Arkansas.

    The UIS program is a real bargain mostly because of the special pricing for online students.

    The Ottawa program looks more like a degree in general studies with an area of concentration in Mathematics. For comparison, UIS requires the courses through Calc III before being admitted to the major. Then there are 8 additional math courses, 32 semester hours, required for the degree. OU only requires three courses after Calc III -- I assume 12 hours, although I can't find any course descriptions online. It's also not clear if they offer any other math courses as electives.

    A minor in mathematics at UIS requires more courses than the major at OU.

    I guess it depends on what you want to do with the degree. If you just want to put a degree on your resume, it might be ok. I doubt you could get into graduate school in mathematics or statistics with the OU degree.

    A little light? My local community college offers higher-level math courses. Again, I guess it's ok if all you want is to list a degree on your resume. But if you really need to learn higher math, this isn't going to do it.

    Now that's more like it... almost.

    The curriculum shows that they require 18 credits of math electives, chosen from a very impressive list of courses. The problem is that if you go to the catalog, they don't actually OFFER those courses. You'll have to take them elsewhere and transfer them in.

    Is anyone familiar with really cheap on-line RA resources for calc 1-3? I've got an interest in the BA from UIS, and local schools are out due to residency requirements. Clovis / LSU don't seem to offer these courses either.
