MAD 3107 Discrete Mathematics ORMHF 3202 Foundations of Mathematics ORCOT 3100 Computational Structures
BA: Mathematics Major
Summary of the Changes: Add new courses MAD 4203 Combinatorics (3 credit hours), MAD 4204 Graph Theory (3 credit hours), and MAD 4XXX Discrete Biomathematics (3 credit hours), to the major electives list for the BA of Mathematics. This does not alter the required number of elective hours or the number of hours in the program. These new courses will provide students with a greater selection of major electives.(Click here to view the Program of study)

BA: Mathematics Major Discrete Analysis Track
Summary of the Changes:We propose to create a new track (Discrete Analysis) that addresses the need for more graduates with training in mathematics, science, and computing by focusing on the idea that (discrete) mathematics and computing are not isolated disciplines, but jointly a new foundational science, important in their own right, but also important in nearly every other scientific discipline. In addition to the numerous applications in networks, optimization, and computing, the so-called emerging disciplines are grounded in discrete and combinatorial mathematics, as well as, computing: biomolecular computing, computational biology (a.k.a. bioinformatics), combinatorial chemistry, computational finance, geographic information systems, and cryptography.Traditionally, the emphasis in mathematics curricula has been on continuous mathematics. On the other hand, computer science departments focus primarily on applications of computing theory, e.g., software engineering, networks, and computer architecture. Since discrete mathematics and theoretical computing are expected to provide effective theory and computational models for nanoscale science, there is a growing need for graduates with strong preparation in these areas of study.
This track is designed to prepare students for employment in mathematics and information analysis-related industries and government agencies, or to pursue postgraduate work in mathematics, computer science, or bioinformatics. The curriculum is designed to allow students to acquire a basic background in mathematics with intensive coursework in discrete mathematics and the fundamentals of computer science. Required subjects include linear algebra for its broad applications; foundations of mathematics, discrete mathematics, abstract algebra, and combinatorics to give experience with proofs; computer programming courses to develop programming skills; and graph theory, automata theory, discrete biomathematics and computational biology to provide the mathematical foundation and skills needed to understand bioinformatics and related modern sciences.
This degree/track requires a minimum of 120 total semester hours with 60 upper-level (3000-4000) semester hours. This track was designed in consultation with faculty from the School of Computing.(Click here to view the Program of study)
The School of Computing Curriculum Committee reviewed the proposed BS in Math with Theoretical Computing and agreed to support the program. The Committee does not feel that any of the proposed new math courses for the program substantially overlap with any of our existing courses. In fact, the program is a good example of an interdisciplinary effort, including a combination of complementary math and computing courses.
ndergraduate - Music
BME: Music Major Music Education Track
Summary of the Changes:The Department of Music requests to add MUS 1101 Concert Attendance (0.0 semester hours) and MUS 1010 Performance Lab (0.0 semester hours) to three additional semesters in the program of study for the BME degree as a major requirement. These two courses are already present for four semesters of study in the degree. We are seeking to add these courses to the junior year of study (Fall/Spring) and the Fall semester of the senior year.The semester hours will not change. (136 semester hours)Rationale for the change:The most recent accreditation report of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) indicates that UNF Music Education majors need to gain additional experience with music performances of varied size and type. The faculty members of the Department of Music agree to require Music Education majors to enroll for three additional semesters in these non-credit courses, MUS 1101 Concert Attendance (0.0 semester hours) and MUS 1010 Performance Lab (0.0 semester hours).
