Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

Why study mathematics?

Because mathematics is a framework upon which humanity builds an understanding of the world.

The degree of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics offers more extensive training in mathematics and its applications than is possible in the B.A. curriculum. The requirements for the B.S. in Mathematics allow a great deal of flexibility in choice of courses and concentrations. Students should plan their programs carefully to meet individual interests and goals, and carefully check the prerequisites for all courses in their programs.

Many students have strong interests in particular areas of mathematics. The Department has created three informal tracks within the B.S. program: a statistics track, an applied mathematics track, and a track in pure mathematics. These tracks are advisory only. Students without strong interests in one of these areas are encouraged to put together a broad program within the B.S. Degree.
