The BA in Mathematics is ideal for those students who wish to attain a broad-based liberal arts and science education. It is a generalized program that enables students to develop critical-thinking, problem solving, analytical, and quantitative skills. Its flexibility allows students to pursue a double major or complete up to two minors. Many of the mathematics majors are double majors in Economics or Computer Science.

The demand for qualified mathematically-trained professionals is found in nearly every industry and profession, including biological and physical sciences, computer science, economics, engineering, finance, operations research, and political science. Our programs provide students with the logical reasoning, quantitative, and analytical thinking skills necessary to compete in today’s complex global environment. We continually strive to improve our students’ knowledge acquisition through ongoing refinement of the instructional process that blends theory with practice. Many of our courses are offered online.
Our major classes are generally small, with most classes having between 10 and 20 students. This allows for a much greater degree of individualized attention for our students. In our capstone course, students learn to write papers in mathematics. Some of these papers, co-authored with our faculty, have appeared in mathematical journals.
All of our programs, while structured, are flexible and can be tailored to suit our students’ individual goals. Students who wish to pursue teaching can enroll in our combined BA in Mathematics / MST in Adolescent Education degree program.
