Mathematics, Bachelor of Arts & Science

placeholder

Program Overview

The Mathematics BA/BS program is designed to prepare students to use quantitative and analytical methods and powerful mathematical problem-solving strategies necessary for lifelong independent learning.

Students will learn to formulate and solve problems using mathematical tools while working alone or in groups on routine problems, non-routine, and open-ended problems, problems involving applications to other fields, problems involving real-world data, and abstract problems within mathematics.

Students in the Mathematics program can specialize in their field of interest or choose an emphasis in Secondary Certification. 

The Mathematics program prepares students for professional careers and graduate studies in actuarial science, computer science, engineering, operations research, biomathematics, cryptography, finance, pure and applied mathematics, and teaching.
