Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
The B.S. Mathematics program aims to produce graduates who are welladapted to both research and industry careers. The program also aims to enable graduates to better connect mathematics to other disciplines and equip them with the theories and tools for lifelong learning. In particular, the program’s learning outcomes are as follows:
 Demonstrate mastery in the core areas of mathematics: algebra, analysis and geometry;
 Demonstrate skills in pattern recognition, generalization, abstraction, critical analysis, synthesis, problemsolving and rigorous argument;
 Develop an enhanced perception of the vitality and importance of mathematics in the modern world;
 Demonstrate knowledge in reading and writing mathematical proofs;
 Validate their own mathematical thinking thru conjectures and arguments;
 Communicate mathematical ideas orally and in writing using clear and precise language; and
 Carry out basic mathematical and statistical computations and use appropriate technologies in the analysis of data.
The courses in the B.S. Mathematics curriculum address both cognitive and content goals that gradually and intentionally lead students from basic to advanced levels of critical and analytical thinking. Cognitive goals are not achieved in a rigid specification of a set of courses. They are instead approached within the context of each student’s maturation throughout the student’s undergraduate years. The curriculum is designed such that a B.S. Mathematics student has a balance between their major courses and general education and elective courses. This enables the students to be wellrounded throughout his/her study.

Admission into the Program
New Incoming Freshmen
A new incoming freshman must qualify for admission into U.P. Diliman thru the U.P. College Admission Test (UPCAT) and must make it to the B.S. Mathematics cutoff in Math. More information here.
Admission into the program, in any case, shall be dependent on the availability of slots in the program and the current resources of the institute.
Undergraduate Transfer Student
All applicants for transfer to the B.S. Mathematics program shall be accepted and processed only for the first semester of each academic year through the Office of the College Secretary, College of Science.
An applicant for transfer should submit the following to the Office of the College Secretary, College of Science not later than one month before the first regular registration day of the first semester or within a prescribed application period.
 For transfer from within the U.P. System
 an accomplished form of Application for Transfer to the College of Science;
 a true copy of grades of all subjects enrolled in;
 an office referral from his/her College/Unit
 For transfer from outside the U.P. System
 an official copy of grades or transcript of records;
 a referral from the U.P. Registrar
For more information, please visit the Student Matters page of the College of Science website.
The Institute of Mathematics shall consider only the applications of students who have satisfied applicable University and College Rules on admission of transfer students.
Admission into the B.S. Mathematics Program is further subject to the following rules. A U.P. student from other programs or a transfer student from other institutions who has finished at least Math 63 or equivalent may be admitted to the program, provided that
 he/she has not incurred a grade of 5.0 in any Math subject, and
 he/she has a weighted average of at least 2.0 in all his Math subjects.
 For transfer from within the U.P. System
