B.S. in Mathematics

Realize your full potential in mathematics. Accept new challenges and learn new aspects of a foundational field. Go beyond the numbers and build skills in critical thinking crucial for careers in science, business, and technology.

What you'll study

Core courses in laboratory science and calculus progress into advanced study of pure and applied mathematics. A large selection of electives investigates important aspects of analysis, algebra, and probability.

How you'll learn more

Participate in the mathematics colloquium series and hear about new research and applications. Compete in a brain bowl contest or be involved in a Pi Day event. Consider a research project with a faculty mentor or obtain an internship in a STEM field.

Where it can take you

Critical thinking skills developed while studying mathematics apply across a range of fields. What about becoming a climate analyst, mathematical biologist, actuary, or a computer programmer? Banking and teaching are always in demand, or you can continue to graduate school in a STEM field of science, technology, engineering or mathematics.
