Philosophy

The Bachelor of Science Program in Mathematics aims at providing students with knowledge in both basic and advanced areas of mathematics to meet the international standard. Undergraduates are also encouraged to apply their mathematical knowledge to other fields in science to help develop the country. The Bachelor of Science Program in Mathematics has two subprograms, the Regular Program and the Distinction Program, which students can choose to suit their capability and needs.

Objectives
  1. To produce undergraduates who have knowledge in both basic and advanced areas of mathematics. These areas are important for the development of science and technology in the country.
  2. To prepare undergraduates who want to gain more mathematical knowledge and to further their study in the graduate level.
  3. To produce undergraduates who have responsibility, creativity, ethics and code of conduct for their chosen careers.
  4. To provide chances for undergraduates who have high potentiality in self-study and self-development by joining the Distinction Program.
Admission Requirements
  1. The student must qualify through the selection process of the Office of Commission on Higher Education.
  2. The student must meet requirements of the Faculty of Science and must file documents intending to study in the field of mathematics.
Selection Procedure
  • Selection method for the first year students
  1. Pass a paper examination, an interview and a health examination through the selection process set forth by the Commission on Higher Education, or
  2. Pass a special selection process set forth by Mahidol University and the Faculty of Science, Mahidol University.

 

  • Selection method for the second year students who have qualifications according to the first year selection. The student must go through the selection process set forth by the Faculty of Science to become a student in the Bachelor of Science Program in Mathematics.

 

  • Selection Procedure for the Distinction Program

Students having the following qualifications can apply for the Distinction Program:

  1. Having completed 4 semesters in the Bachelor of Science Program in Mathematics and never been in the Distinction Program in Mathematics before.
  2. Having a cumulative GPA of no less than 3.25 for those 4 semesters.
  3. Having grades for the mathematics core courses in those 4 semesters of no lower than B.
  4. Meeting all qualifications for students in the Distinction Program according to regulations of the Faculty of Science.
Academic System

A student may complete the Bachelor of Science Program in Mathematics in a regular period of 4 years. Each academic year consists of two regular semesters (16 weeks) and one summer semester (6 weeks). A Student must enroll in and complete all the requirements of the Bachelor of Science Program in Mathematics in order to qualify for graduation. One credit of a lecture course is equivalent to one hour of teaching per week in a regular semester. One credit of laboratory course is equivalent to two or three hours per week in a regular semester.

Duration of Study

No less than 3 academic years, but no more than 8 academic years.

Program of Study
  1. A total of 135 credits are required for completion of the Regular Program, and 136 for the Distinction Program.
