Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree and to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Either of these two programs, with suitably chosen electives, constitutes an excellent background for a wide range of careers, in particular as a systems analyst, mathematics teacher, actuary and statistician.

Students interested in advanced or professional degrees, for example in the medical sciences, benefit from rigorous training in mathematics. Furthermore, the Bachelor of Science degree program is designed to prepare students for graduate work in mathematics and related areas.
