Mathematics Major BA


Return to Colleges, Departments, and Programs Return to: Colleges, Departments, and Programs

BA degree  

The mathematics program is designed to provide a solid foundation in the theoretical and applied aspects of mathematics necessary for a variety of professional careers. The flexibility within the third and fourth years is established to enable mathematics majors (BA or BS) to concentrate in areas of their interest. An alternative computational mathematics option major (BS-MTHC) is offered to meet the needs of our present-day computer-oriented society. Students can choose their curricula so as to emphasize that role of mathematics which will be useful to them in later years, whether in K-12 school teaching, graduate school, a career in the public or private sector, a career in industry, or graduate study in areas that emphasize math, such as economics and the sciences.

All math courses counting for the major must be completed with a C or higher.
