# Mathematics Program Requirements

## Mathematical Sciences (MATH)

The purpose of the major in Mathematical Sciences at Barry University is to build a strong foundation for careers in mathematics. The courses of study cover the main areas of algebra, analysis, probability, statistics, numerical analysis and topology. Co-requisites in physics and computer science are also required.

There are two specializations within Mathematical Sciences: Applied Mathematics and Data Analytics. A core of courses is required from all Math majors and, according to each specialization, a number of recommended courses is offered each semester on a rotational basis.

Math Majors are encouraged to seek a second specialization in Cybersecurity or Digital Media
