Program Overview Mathematical Sciences (BS)

A major in the Mathematical Sciences is intended for students who wish to build a strong foundation for careers in mathematics. These include teaching, computer-­related areas, engineering, and actuarial sciences, among others. The B.S. in Mathematical Sciences also prepares students who wish to pursue further study in the mathematical sciences at the graduate level for math-­related jobs that exist in college teaching, research, industry, insurance companies, and government agencies such as the U.S. Census Bureau, Department of Energy, Department of Defense, etc.

Those who opt for a B.S. in Mathematical Sciences will study the fascinating branches of this major including algebra, probability, statistics, numerical analysis, and discrete mathematics to name a few. Ask one of our helpful advisors how you can incorporate a second specialization of Cybersecurity, Digital Media, or Data Analytics into your degree. These two fields are included with the STEM occupations projected to see a 12 percent growth through 2029.
