Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Schools

Major codes BS3101, BA3101

The Math major offers instruction in mathematical techniques and ways of thinking that can be used in a wide variety of careers. The major covers core topics that provide a common structure, while leaving flexibility to pursue topics of interest. This flexibility allows the math major to be combined with other majors in the sciences, engineering, and technology to form a coherent undergraduate experience. Whether as a part of a double major or alone, a math degree is a recognized intellectual achievement. It is marketable to a broad selection of employers, or can be used as an entrace to a variety of graduate and professional schools.

When planning any program of study in mathematics, it is strongly recommended that you consult an advisor from the Department. Also, see the mathematics programs in actuarial science, applied mathematics, and meteorology.

See the General Education Requirements listing in the “Graduation Requirements—Universitywide” section for Tier I quantitative skills requirements.
