The bachelor of science degree provides a depth of study in mathematics and prepares students for graduate school or professional employment in related fields. The bachelor of arts degree provides significant breadth in mathematics with the goal of helping students pair their love of mathematics with another discipline, such as education or business.
All majors take the mathematics core (Calculus 1, 2 & 3, and Linear Algebra) and Computer Programming 1. At that point, students decide which degree they wish to pursue, which determines the other mathematics courses taken. Some courses are required, but students may choose Discrete Mathematics, Probability & Statistics, Differential Equations, Modern Algebra, and Real Analysis. There are also independent studies available to accommodate the special interests of students.
