Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
Students take a full spectrum of classes in mathematics, including once which require formal arguments and proofs and full mathematical rigor. Upper division classes vary according to the specialization chosen by the students. Students obtain training and preparation for a number of careers requiring quantitative and analytic skills, including teaching. The curriculum prepares students to obtain graduate degrees in mathematical sciences and STEM disciplines.
- Analytical and logical reasoning; deductive reasoning; problem solving, pattern recognition and inductive reasoning. Specialized knowledge of mathematical theories, methods and tools.
- Ability to choose the right mathematical methods or formulas to solve a problem; ability to utilize algebraic and discrete methods to formulate hypotheses and solve problems in a broad range of situations; ability to utilize analytical and geometric methods to produce precise solutions to mathematical problems and applications.
- Modeling of real-world problems to obtain meaningful conclusions; computer proficiency in MATLAB or R; statistical analysis of data; manipulate quantitative data; computational skills.
