B.A. in Mathematics

Galileo famously said that the Book of Nature is written "in the language of Mathematics." Today, no other discipline opens doors to success in the modern world like a mastery of mathematics. 

In this 120-credit Bachelor of Arts program you will receive a thorough grounding in Pure and Applied Mathematics, including the theory and practical application of calculus, logic, algebra and general physics. After mastering the fundamentals of calculus and analytic geometry, you will go on to explore such topics as probability theory and its applications, real and complex number systems and computer science.

The program provides a solid foundation for further study at the graduate level, as well as an ideal preparation for a wide variety of rewarding careers in fields such as insurance, technology, engineering, education and manufacturing.
