Mathematics, B.S.

The study of mathematics develops one’s ability to express one’s thoughts clearly and precisely, to reason logically, and to analyze and solve problems algorithmically. The analysis and design of efficient algorithms —that is, sets of rules used for computation — is fundamental to problem solving in both mathematics and computer science.

The Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics prepares students for graduate school, as well as professional careers in industry and education. Mathematics majors may choose to specialize in either pure mathematics or computational mathematics by appropriate selection of electives in consultation with their advisors.
