The Mathematics major offers a strong program 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 Mathematics 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 B.A. degree with a major in mathematics is a recognized intellectual achievement. It is marketable to a broad selection of employers, or can be used as an entrance to a variety of graduate and professional schools.
The B.A. degree is recommended for students who want to pursue a broad or liberal arts education with a concentration in the mathematical sciences, have plans for future education or employment in an interdisciplinary area, or desire a double major in mathematics and some other field. For a more concentrated program in mathematics, a student should consider the B.S. degree with either the Mathematics major or Applied Mathematics major. Other mathematics majors offered are Actuarial Science, Mathematical Statistics, and Meteorology. When planning any program of study in mathematics, it is strongly recommended that you consult an advisor from the Department.
