## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm pondering attending Mercy College in NY and earning my BS in Mathematics online, but had some questions regarding whether or not the cirriculum was worth anything. Below is the online cirriculum regarding the mandatory math classes:

MATH 131 Foundations of Computing I

MATH 231 Foundations of Computing II

MATH 244 Discrete Structures

MATH 260 Calculus I

MATH 261 Calculus II

MATH 307 Number Theory

MATH 315 Linear Algebra

MATH 350 Probability: Theory and Applications

MATH 351 Statistics: Theory and Applications

MATH 360 Calculus III

MATH 365 Algebraic Structures

MATH 417 Mathematical Modeling

MATH 327 Computer Graphics

MATH 329 Numerical Analysis

MATH 362 Differential Equations

MATH 395 Special Topics in Mathematics

MATH 460 Advanced Calculus I

MATH 461 Advanced Calculus II

So is this program worth pursuing or am I better off looking elsewhere? Also, what could be better about the program so I know what to look for in other schools. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
