The Department of Mathematics offers two degree programs in mathematics: the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics.
The Bachelor of Science degree program has five plans, each designed for specific career goals: Plan A, the Traditional track; Plan B, the Applied Computational track; Plan C, the Applied Discrete track; Plan D, the Statistics/Actuarial track; and Plan E, the Secondary Education track. The student's advisor will help the student choose the best track, based on the student's interests.
Plan A, a traditional mathematics option, offers students a broad background in mathematics and is principally designed to prepare students for graduate study in pure or applied mathematics.
Plans B and C are designed to offer students a solid background in applied mathematics, preparing them for employment in government agencies or industry, as well as further study in mathematics. Plan B, an option in applied computational mathematics, emphasizes topics such as differential equations and numerical analysis, and leads to employment in a variety of areas, including engineering or computational types of work. Plan C, an option in applied discrete mathematics, emphasizes topics such as graph theory, combinatorics, and number theory, and leads to employment in areas such as communications, national security, and computer-related fields. Both Plans B and C involve a choice of directed electives in the physical sciences, business, or the social sciences.
Plan D, an option in applied statistics and actuarial science, is designed to offer students a solid theoretical and applied background in statistics, preparing them for employment in a wide variety of interesting careers.
Plan E, an option in secondary education, is designed for students seeking mathematics teacher certification at the secondary level. Students who complete this option will qualify for certification in secondary education in mathematics.
The Bachelor of Arts degree program is designed for students seeking employment in government or business or those desiring further study in mathematics.
