BS in Mathematics

Students earning a B.S. in Mathematics will acquire foundational knowledge in the field, as well as competency in the critical thinking, technological, and communication skills necessary for its application. The prevalent use of increasingly complex mathematical models in every STEM field (and beyond), has made facility with the language and techniques of mathematics a highly desirable skill. Graduating students are prepared for industry jobs in finance, tech, risk analysis, climate science, criminal justice, and the like, as well as teaching careers in secondary school or junior college. Typical destinations for students wishing to pursue graduate studies are biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering, finance, law, medicine, and of course, mathematics.
