Mathematics prepares students for the demands of a modern global society where sophisticated, quantitative skills are required to solve challenging programs in science, engineering, business, education and government. Mathematicians are essential to the fields of computer science, engineering, bioinformatics, data mining, computer animation, economics, epidemiology, ecology and climatology.
The Department of Mathematics offers a bachelor of science, bachelor of arts, master of science and doctor of philosophy in mathematics and applied mathematics. Many math students also double major in another discipline. The B.A. option exposes students to the basic knowledge of mathematics while providing an appreciation for liberal arts. The degree is ideal for students interested in selecting a minor field in the arts or humanities.
A B.S. degree in mathematics prepares students to use advanced mathematics in the development of mathematical principles, data analysis and problem solving. Mathematicians work closely with engineers and scientists in government, private corporations and research companies.
The B.S. degree in applied mathematics is offered with four options: computer sciences, engineering, biomathematics and business. This option is best suited for those who plan to attend graduate school or work in business or industry.
Exposes students to the basic knowledge of mathematics while providing an appreciation for the liberal arts, ideal for students interested in teaching or working in a non-technical area of mathematics.
Prepares students to use advanced mathematics in the development of mathematical principles, data analysis and problem solving.
Provides a designated field of application for students while preserving the degree’s foundation in mathematic principles, with options in computer science, engineering, biomathematics, business and education.
Provides students an opportunity to complete both degrees in five years.
Non-major students interested in gaining a basic understanding of the mathematics discipline are encouraged to pursue a minor.
