Mathematics Transfer Articulation

 


Students transferring from Alabama two-year and four-year colleges and universities should consult the AGSC site for complete details regarding Areas I-IV for all majors, including the list of approved courses for each institution.

Specific requirements for students planning to transfer to UAH and major in mathematical sciences are included below:

Area I 
Written Composition (6 sh)
Area II 
Humanities and Fine Arts (12 sh)

" Requirements include at least 12 semester hours in humanities with a minimum of 3 semester hours in literature, 3 semester hours in the arts, and the remaining semester hours from the humanities and/or fine arts."

"As part of the General Studies Curriculum, students must complete a 6-semester hour sequence either in literature or in history."

All B.S. degrees and the B.S. and B.A. degrees leading to teacher certification in mathematical science require a course in rhetorical communication. This requirement can be met by using SPH 106 or SPH 107 to partially fulfill the Area II requirements, or by using it to complete the hours in Area V.

Area III 
Natural Sciences and Mathematics (11 sh)

"Requirements include at least 11 semester hours with at least 3 semester hours in mathematics at the precalculus algebra level or higher and at least 8 semester hours in the natural sciences which must include laboratory experiences."

AL College System Course Titles
MTH 113 Precalculus Trigonometry (3sh)
Or
MTH 115 Precalculus Algebra and Trigonometry (3sh)
*both courses area acceptable as prerequisites for the Calculus I requirement in Area V

Students majoring in mathematical sciences at UAH must take calculus based physics I and II. Therefore, it is recommended that students who intend to transfer to UAH and major in mathematical sciences use the following courses to complete their 8 hours of laboratory science:
AL College System Course Titles
PHY 213 General Physics with Calculus I
PHY 214 General Physics with Calculus II

Area IV 
History, Social, and Behavioral Sciences (12 sh)

"Requirements include 12 semester hours with at least a 3 semester hour course in history and at least 6 semester hours from among other disciplines in the social and behavioral sciences."

"As part of the General Studies Curriculum, students must complete a 6-semester hour sequence either in literature or in history"

Students intending to major in mathematical sciences with a science and technology business minor should take the following courses as partial fulfillment of Area IV requirements:

Al College System Course Titles
ECO 231 Principles of Macroeconomics
ECO 232 Principles of Microeconomics

Area V - Preprofessional, Major and Elective Courses Mathematical Sciences Majors at UAH (22-23 sh)(22-23 sh)

1. Required Courses - Requirements ratified by the AGSC for Mathematical Sciences
        AL College System Course Titles
        *MTH 125 Calculus I (4sh)
        MTH 126 Calculus II (4sh)
        MTH 227 Calculus III (4sh) 
        *If not already satisfied

2. Courses to fulfill Area V for major in Mathematical sciences at UAH
        The additional 10-11 sh to complete Area V should be fulfilled by choosing from the following:
UAH Course Titles AL College System Course Titles
CM 113 Introduction to Rhetorical Communication - if not taken in Area II. (3 sh) SPH 106 Fundamentals of Oral Communication
SPH 107 Fundamentals of Public Speaking
One additional lab science course (BYS, CH or PH) (4sh) One additional lab science course (BIO, CH or PHY) (4sh)
MA 244 Introduction to Linear Algebra (4sh)
(Not MTH 238 Applied Differential Equations, since a junior-level differential equations class is required for a math major or minor at UAH).
MTH 237 Linear Algebra (4sh)
(Not MTH 238 Applied Differential Equations, since a junior-level differential equations class is required for a math major or minor at UAH).
