Mathematics, BS

The mathematics program offers students preparation for graduate study, careers in teaching, scientific computing, and technology-related industry. While offering a basic grounding in the classical areas of mathematics, the curriculum also emphasizes applied mathematics and its constantly evolving role in analyzing and solving problems in fields ranging from economics to aerodynamics to environmental ecology.
