Majoring in Mathematics

department of mathematics

Options for mathematics majors

The Mathematics Department offers two undergraduate degree programs, leading to the Bachelor of Science and to the Bachelor of Arts.

Students interested in graduate study in mathematics, or in the importance of mathematics in the sciences, should pursue the B.S. For others, such as those who also wish to pursue study in a non-quantitative area or who are preparing to teach mathematics at the pre-collegiate level, the B.A. will be more appropriate.

Please direct any questions about the major in Mathematics to the Assistant Chair for Undergraduate Programs.

B.A. degree requirements

If you have a question about getting started in the major (for 99% of our students, this will be somewhere in the Calculus sequence MATH 1102 - MATH 1105 - MATH 2202), please visit the Mathematics major advisement website.

We also have other pages targeted towards helping you plan your math program and/or make room your schedule if you're thinking about going abroad.
