Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Mathematics

Course of Study

The B.S. degree program differs from the B.A. degree program in that it is more specifically application-oriented. As it requires greater concentration in mathematical analysis and science, it is somewhat less flexible than the B.A. program. At the same time there is no foreign language requirement for the B.S. degree.  Sample four-year programs can be found below the course listing.

For a complete listing of the required courses, please refer to the Undergraduate Catalog.
