Students can pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics as preparation for immediate employment or graduate school. Students are trained to apply the universal language of mathematical methods and reasoning to address problems in mathematics and other fields, to become self-reliant learners, and to communicate ideas effectively.
All students majoring in mathematics must complete a minor or double major. Recommended minors are Computer Science, Business, or Science. For students receiving a teaching certificate and would like to also earn a BS in Mathematics use Education as their double major.
All students are encouraged to take Foreign Language courses as electives.
