B.S. Mathematics

The Bachelor of Science program in Mathematics is designed to prepare students to take positions in industry, to pursue graduate training, or to enter the teaching profession. It allows some flexibility in course work which necessitates close cooperation with a mathematics department advisor who should be selected early in the student’s career.

Students must fulfill the university's General Education Requirements (a minimum of 36 credits--see the General Education Requirements in the Academic Information section of this catalog).
