BS in Mathematics
This major is designed to offer you quality education in mathematics in addition to a solid foundation in the liberal arts by providing you with a strong background in the skills of logic, reasoning, critical thinking, and technology.
The program covers the traditional aspect of any mathematics major and offers courses that cover contemporary topics in mathematics. It also offers a combination of pure and applied mathematics courses, thus exposing you to mathematical fields that are useful in a multitude of applications such as the physical sciences and engineering, among others.
What Will I Learn?
The required areas of study include core mathematics courses to form a solid foundation in the areas of real analysis, complex analysis, linear algebra, abstract algebra, probability and statistics.
Electives vary between the pure and applied mathematics courses. In addition, you are required to complete three credits in computer programming and nine credits chosen in the fields of computer science, engineering, chemistry, physics, biology and actuarial science.
The program prepares you for a wide range of careers such as teaching, but also careers in banking and finance, and the insurance business. It also prepares students to pursue graduate studies in mathematics, applied mathematics, or other related fields.
A minimum of 92 credits are required to graduate, and can be completed in three years for sophomores.
