BS in Mathematics Mission, Objectives and Learning Outcomes


The mission of the BS in Mathematics is to offer a quality and broad education in mathematics, supported by a foundation in the liberal arts. The program aims at providing its graduates with the knowledge and skills to teach at all school levels, and to pursue higher degrees in mathematics and other related fields.

Program objectives

The BS in Mathematics seeks to:

  1. Provide students with a strong background in the skills of logic, reasoning, critical thinking and relevant technology.
  2. Cover the traditional aspect of the mathematics major and supplement it with courses covering contemporary mathematical topics.
  3. Provide students with a broad exposure to fields of mathematics that are useful in the physical sciences, engineering and others.
  4. Provide specific courses designed for students who plan to become teachers of mathematics (in case they plan to complete a Teaching Diploma).
  5. Provide the appropriate mathematical background for students who wish to pursue graduate studies in mathematics or other related fields.

Learning outcomes

Upon completion of the BS in Mathematics, students should be able to:

  1. Recognize various mathematical structures.
  2. Produce sound mathematical arguments in the form of rigorous proofs.
  3. Choose appropriate mathematical tools for symbolic and numeric computations.
  4. Relate the different branches of mathematics.
  5. Construct mathematical models.
