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.
