Major in Mathematics or Statistics
Our curriculum provides a broad basic training in Mathematics and Statistics. At the undergraduate level, we offer the following programs leading to Bachelor's degrees:
- Bachelor of Science in Mathematics -- our most extensive program complemented with study in an allied field using mathematics in its applications;
- Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Statistics Option -- a major that provides a foundation in mathematics and emphasis on application of statistical methods;
- Bachelor of Arts, Major in Mathematics -- a flexible program through the College of Arts & Sciences providing mathematics in the context of a liberal arts degree, allowing a wide range of double majors and minors, as well as the option of a Concentration in Statistics.
Each of these programs requires ancillary courses to ensure a broad education with skills in communication, problem-solving, and critical thinking. With careful planning, the ancillary and distribution requirements of the degree Math or Stat can actually satisfy other degree requirements. For example, one can obtain a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.A. in Economics, or a B.S. in Math and a B.S. in Chemistry within the usual 120 required credit hours.
