The mathematics curriculum is quite flexible. It is designed to provide a sound basic training in mathematics that allows a student to experience the broad sweep of mathematical ideas and techniques, to utilize the computer in mathematics, and to develop an area of special interest in the mathematical sciences.
The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics is our most extensive program, complemented with study in an allied field using mathematics in its applications.
Furthermore, individuals trained in the mathematical sciences have many opportunities to use their knowledge. Mathematics and statistics majors are equally well-prepared for jobs in business, industry, government, or teaching and for advanced study in graduate school. For example, UVM mathematics and statistics graduates are often employed in the computer, information, and communications industries, in engineering, in the insurance business, in government agencies, and in a variety of other occupations. Many attend graduate school in the mathematical sciences, business, the physical sciences, social sciences, medicine, dentistry, or law.

Tracks For Students Considering Graduate School
Below are two tracks for students considering graduate school in mathematics or related disciplines. These tracks are not formal in any sense. The below are simply curricular suggestions for students who are considering using significant amounts of mathematics after graduation. They are also appropriate for students who just want some suggestions as to how to ensure they get a strong foundation in mathematics. While there is a lot of overlap between pure and applied mathematics, we have written separate tracks for each for simplicity.
