About this program

Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The major in Mathematics emphasizes the understanding of mathematical reasoning and process as foundational for developing the ability to do calculations and to apply logical, analytic, and technological skills in problems solving. Major courses cover a broad set of mathematical fields and enable the student to master and apply the basic principles of mathematics to multiple situations. It provides experiences with a variety of technological tools such as computer algebra system calculators, visualization software like MATLAB, and statistical packages such as SPSS. The learning goals of helping students to gain broad mathematical understanding , the ability to engage in rigorous calculation, and the capability to express and explain mathematical solutions to problems prepare students for graduate work and for careers in science, business, social sciences, teaching at the secondary level, and other careers that require applied mathematics.

The mathematics curriculum is consistent with the Curriculum Guide 2015 of the Mathematical Association of America.
