B.S. Degree in Mathematics

__B.S. Degree in Mathematics__

**Description**

A BS Degree in Mathematics with the Computational emphasis includes courses from several areas of mathematics, including statistics, mathematical analysis, and computer modeling and simulation. Many of the course will involve heavy use of computers. Computational mathematics is focused on the skills needed to solve real-world problems.
To receive the B.S. Degree in Mathematics, the student must meet the minimum university requirements and specific requirements for the program. Completion of 120 credits is required for this degree which includes the Liberal Arts and Sciences Core (42 credits).

**Student Learning Outcomes **

- Understand the theory and applications of calculus and linear algebra.
- Develop the capacity for rigorous analytical thought and the ability to communicate ideas in a precise manner.
- Possess an awareness of the abstract nature of theoretical mathematics and the ability to write proofs.
- Possess an understanding of the breadth of the mathematical sciences and their deep inter-connecting principles.
- Ability to solve multi-step problems and perform complex tasks.
- Develop the ability to detect basic mathematical structures (patterns) and make generalizations from them.
