BS in Mathematics
Recognizing that mathematical expertise is more important than ever, particularly in the computer and high-technology arenas, the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Mathematics degree program prepares students for employment in the mathematical sciences or for future study. Mathematics degree concentration opportunities combine math study with philosophy, economics, computer science, and math education. Faculty focuses include dynamical systems, number theory, and geometry.
- A broad overview of mathematical concepts, theories, and applications.
- Critical-thinking skills and the ability to understand the fundamentals of mathematical theories.
- A broad-based education in the liberal arts, including exposure to the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences, that may be considered complete in itself or suitable as preparation for graduate study.
Note: Students wishing to pursue a mathematics degree program may have to cross-register and take upper-level mathematics and/or related courses in the College of Arts & Sciences at day tuition rates.
