The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Mathematics requires a minimum of 120 credits and is designed to prepare students to enter graduate school in mathematics or other disciplines that require a strong background in mathematics. This degree is also appropriate for students seeking a solid liberal arts degree that will enable them to be successful in a wide variety of careers.
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mathematics Education requires a minimum of 120 credits. This degree is for students who intend to teach mathematics at the middle school or high school level. In addition to the requirements in the Mathematics Department, students must complete the “Professional Education Sequence” of courses required for Teaching Licensure.
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mathematics requires a minimum of 120 credits and is a professional degree with a computational emphasis. This emphasis is for students who wish to prepare themselves for industrial careers that involve problem solving using computer technology.
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mathematics: Actuarial Science requires a minimum of 120 credits and will prepare students for a career as an Actuary. The field requires knowledge of probability, statistics, finance, and economics. Actuaries often work in the financial services sector, including working for insurance companies, commercial banks, and investment banks.
Students who major in mathematics often declare a minor in a second field such as biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, or business. Minors in mathematics are available to complement any major.
