Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics program is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of mathemat­ics and its sub-fields and to allow students to pursue a minor in a related field of study. This program is the more flexible option for students wishing to complete combined majors. In addition to a core of courses and elective options in mathematics, this program allows students to pursue internships, individualized independent study, and under­graduate research with faculty members. This program equips students to follow a variety of post-college paths: graduates of this program pursue further education at graduate schools in related disciplines or hold responsible positions in businesses and governmental agencies.
