Mathematics, B.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The major in Mathematics is based on the program recommended by the Mathematical Association of America. It is designed to prepare students for either a career in mathematics or a mathematics-related field, or to continue their studies in graduate school. We encourage undergraduate research experiences and/or industry internships to help our students prepare for their postgraduate careers.
