Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The major in Mathematics leading to the Bachelor of Science degree prepares students for immediate employment after completion of the degree or for graduate study. It is designed to give students a broad background in the major areas of mathematics, while remaining flexible enough to allow students to tailor the program to meet their career objectives. Graduates have entered graduate programs in mathematics, statistics, and operations research/supply chain management at many leading universities, while others have entered into a variety of employment situations—as actuaries, statisticians, analysts, computer programmers, systems analysts, and teachers. Other graduates have entered professional schools in law, medicine, and business.
