Mathematics, B.S.

Mathematics is one of the great unifying themes in our modern culture. It is a language, a science, an art form and a tool of tremendous power. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics seeks to introduce students to this vast area of knowledge and to show them how mathematics can be used to solve problems.

A major in mathematics can lead to many satisfying careers, including teaching and research. Mathematics ranks in the top 10 of the highest starting salaries for someone with a bachelor’s degree.

The B.S. degree in mathematics program offers several concentrations:

  • Actuarial Science, which prepares students to work as actuaries
  • Applied Mathematics, which provides a background in mathematical computation, mathematical modeling and statistics.
  • Computer Information Systems, which prepares students for work in the field of management information systems
  • Computer Science, which explores the scientific aspects of computing
  • Managerial Sciences, which offers training in management modeling and problem-solving
  • Statistics, which prepares students for work as applied statisticians
