If you have not selected a transfer school, this sample transfer plan guides students who want to transfer into a math major to complete a bachelor’s degree.
Transfer Guides and Agreements
If you already have a transfer school in mind, your advisor will customize a transfer plan for that college or university. BHC also has many transfer guides and agreements already established with four-year institutions in a variety of majors.
Our 2+2 agreement with Western Illinois University provides a transfer degree path for students interested in earning a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics: Data Science & Statistics (PDF).
Students taking courses in the Mathematics Department go on to careers in many fields, including data statistics and analytics, engineering, nursing, actuary sciences, or have decided to teach math at a multitude of grade levels. The department even has two faculty members who are proud BHC graduates!
The Mathematics Department provides many of the courses needed for a mathematics major or minor at a four-year college in a supportive, collaborative environment. All of the classes are small with less than 30 students. This creates a more personalized learning experience and a tight-knit classroom with dedicated faculty, greatly enhancing student success rate.
