Mathematics (B.S.) 2022-2023 Catalog Year
College of Arts and Sciences
Department of Mathematics

The B.S. in Mathematics provides a more intensive exposure to the technical aspects of the discipline and provides opportunities for students to develop general analytical and problem-solving skills and gain specific, in-depth knowledge in certain areas of mathematics. Students will be prepared for graduate study in mathematics, science, or engineering.
