Undergraduate Degrees

Undergraduate mathematics majors can earn degrees of Bachelor of Science (B.S.) or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). The Bachelor of Arts degree provides a traditional liberal arts experience through a balanced course of study in the arts, humanities, foreign language, social and natural sciences. The Bachelor of Science degree is an "extended program" that provides a rigorous education in mathematics, computing and science.

Students planning to major in mathematics are encouraged to consult an advisor from the Mathematics and Statistics Department to design a program of study in mathematics or statistics.
