Our BA in mathematics offers students a curriculum focused on theoretical and applied mathematics, helping students to develop logical and analytical problem-solving skills. The BA degree is a good fit for students interested in a broader experience, such as those concentrating in finance or aspiring to become secondary-school educators.

This degree also combines easily with majors or minors in the business, natural sciences, computer science, engineering and related fields. The BA program is excellent preparation for graduate school in quantitative subjects. Mathematics majors find employment in academia, high-tech industries, the financial sector and government agencies, with positions including educators, research mathematicians, engineers, computer programmers, financial analysts, economists and actuaries.
