Program Description

The program of study leading to the Bachelor of Science with a major in Mathematics offers formal training in problem solving, critical and quantitative thinking and logical argument. It also provides a solid foundation in the application of analytical, geometrical, and numerical methods to real world problems. This program is highly customizable. In addition to a core set of mathematics courses, the program also requires completion of a concentration or minor that prepares the student for graduate study or for employment in various mathematics and statistics-related fields. The goal of this major is to assist students in acquiring both a deep understanding of mathematics and an ability to apply it to science and industry.

This program is a part of the College of Science and Mathematics .
