Mathematics, BS


Return to: Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences Mathematics has been described as the queen of the sciences. Mathematics is the language of quantitative information and structure. Quantitative information is acquired, classified, and processed according to mathematical models of physical phenomena with mathematical tools. There is a wide range of applications even of the most pure of mathematical disciplines. Cryptography is based on algebra, signal processing is based on Fourier analysis, and important applications from topology to physics exist as well. In our department, we offer unique research opportunities for undergraduates in mathematical biology, scientific computing, and financial mathematics as well as algebra, geometry, and analysis.
The Department of Mathematics offers bachelor degree programs in mathematics, applied mathematics, actuarial mathematics, and mathematical biology. We also offer a joint major in mathematicseconomics and data science . Each of the department’s majors has its own philosophy and its own formal requirements.
