The program consists of three parts:
- Liberal Arts Core (LAC) Credits
- Required Major Credits
- University-Wide Credits
All undergraduate programs require a core of common courses to provide students with a solid foundation in the mathematical sciences. Thereafter, students can choose from three different emphasis areas depending on their educational interests and goals.
This program permits students to acquire the standard concepts of undergraduate mathematics including calculus, real and complex analysis, differential equations, linear and abstract algebra, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics. Graduates will be prepared to enter a graduate program in mathematics or some other related discipline such as statistics. They may also begin a career in a variety of quantitative settings, including branches of engineering, physical and social science, finance and management, law and medicine.
