Mathematics


Math and statistics majors are technically competent and well-grounded in mathematical theory and have opportunities for employment in a variety of fields. The BA program allows students to specialize in mathematics and at the same time earn teacher licensure, follow a broad liberal arts program, or specialize in a second area. The BS program is more technically oriented and provides solid preparation for work or study in mathematics or a related field.
