The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers three undergraduate degrees and one graduate degree:
• Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics
This degree is popular with those students wishing to major in mathematics and have a broader background in the liberal arts and world culture. The degree is the mostly easily attainable for students wanting a double major within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, or students seeking to also complete a B.S. Ed. degree from the School of Education.
• Bachelor of Science in (Applied) Mathematics
This degree is popular with those students wishing to major in mathematics and have a greater concentration in mathematics, science, and statistics. The department is currently planning options within the degree to allow for concentrations in theoretical mathematics and statistics.
• Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science
This degree is currently our most popular, offering courses that prepare students for the FM and P actuarial examinations.
• Master of Science in (Applied) Mathematics and Computer Science
This program was designed to meet the needs of those already working in the technical or quantitative fields, for those who have recently earned a bachelor’s degree in science or business areas, and for those who are simply interested in increasing their skills in applied mathematics or computing. This advanced degree prepares students to meet the complex computer and mathematical challenges they will face in today’s changing, high- tech business environment. A key feature of this program is that graduate classes often meet during weekday evening hours to accommodate the schedules of employed adult students.
