Mathematics (BA)

Math is the science of problem-solving. Students in the BA degree program in mathematics apply the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills they learn to many endeavors, because math is a crucial component in engineering, life sciences, business, economics and social sciences. In the bachelor's degree program in mathematics, students acquire a strong general mathematics background, but retain the flexibility to pursue other areas of interest through a minor or even a second major. Combining a second area of study such as life science, physics, computer science or business creates a powerful combination for future career goals.
