Mathematical and Computer Sciences

Students in the mathematical programs analyze and solve problems in a variety of environments while improving and extending their logical skills. Major programs may be elected which emphasize abstract or applied mathematics.

A student may earn either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics. Interdepartmental majors are offered in mathematical economics and mathematics-physics. Students interested in any of these majors are encouraged to consult the department chair for advising assistance.

Note: No more than two 300-level courses may be double-counted for a mathematics major and a statistics minor. No 300-level course may be double-counted for a mathematics minor and a statistics minor.
