Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The B.S. in Mathematics is designed to prepare the graduate for a career in a field that employs professionals with mathematical and/or computer science competence.

At the same time, it provides for the student to add courses that will prepare him/her to pursue a graduate degree in either mathematics or computer science.

The Bachelor’s program consists of 120 credit hours. In addition to general education courses, the following courses comprise the core curriculum:
