About the Degree:
Quantity, structure, space, change: These are the topics studied by mathemeticians. Mathematics is a "language" all its own and is essential for the study of modern scientific developments. With a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics, we offer you an extensive program to prepare you for graduate study or employment. It's also a degree that can benefit those who choose to pursue a more demanding program, combining mathematics with a concentration in another scientific discipline.
What You'll Learn:
- All math majors will demonstrate computational proficiency and have knowledge of numbers, relationships among number systems, and meanings of operations.
- All math majors will have knowledge of relationships among algebraic quantities including functions, ways of representing mathematical relationships, and analysis of change.
- All math majors will have knowledge of geometric modeling to explore and analyze geometric shapes, structures, and their properties.
- All math majors will demonstrate a conceptual understanding of limits, continuity, differentiation, integration and a thorough background in the techniques and applications of the calculus.
- All math majors will have knowledge of the fundamental ideas of discrete mathematics in the formulation and solution of problems.
- All math majors will demonstrate an understanding of concepts and practices relating to data analysis, statistics and probability theory.
This Degree is Great for You if:
- You want to build machines or structures as an engineer, work in a field that requires a knowledge of statistics.
- You want a career in computer science, which is one of the fastest growing areas in America for graduates with mathematics degrees.
- You want to move on to graduate school for more advanced study.
