Mathematics (B.A.)  

This major is recommended for students who want to pursue a broad or liberal arts education with a concentration in the mathematical sciences, have plans for future education or employment in an interdisciplinary area; or desire a double major in mathematics and some other field. The mathematics major offers a strong program in mathematical techniques and ways of thinking that can be used in a wide variety of careers. The major covers core topics that provide a common structure, while leaving flexibility to pursue topics of interest. This flexibility allows the mathematics major to be combined with other majors in the sciences, engineering, and technology to form a coherent undergraduate experience. Whether as a part of a double major or alone, a B.A. degree with a major in mathematics is a recognized intellectual achievement. It is marketable to a broad selection of employers, or can be used as an entrance to a variety of graduate and professional schools.

The Department of Mathematics offers undergraduate degrees with majors in mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematical statistics, and actuarial sciences and a minor in mathematics. In addition, the department hosts an interdisciplinary meteorology major as well as a mathematics major program through the Honors Tutorial College (HTC) for students with exceptionally strong records. Besides quality undergraduate programs, the department also supports Masters and Ph.D. programs in applied, pure, and computational mathematics.
