B.A. in Mathematics

Home > Catalog > Mathematics


The Bachelor of Arts degree program in Mathematics is designed to provide students with the mathematical skills that can be used in many careers, as well as in everyday life. Mathematics plays a dual role of being an academic discipline on its own, and serving as the basic language for all sciences. Certain skills learned in the program will prepare students to apply mathematics to real-life situations, while other skills will provide a solid base for statistical research. Upon completion of the program, a student will be well rounded to be able to choose either a career in industry or pursuing further studies in academia.

The aim of the Mathematics department is to prepare students to move into jobs of the future. The discipline of mathematics offers a variety of programs in pure and applied mathematics to meet the needs of students in different academic and career areas.
