About
The Bachelor of Sciences in Mathematical Sciences is designed to include a large level of flexibility to serve students in a variety of areas in Mathematical Sciences and statistics: pure math, computational math, applied math, and statistics.
The degree requires students to take a onesemester course in the following standard areas: Real Analysis, Algebra, Differential Equations, and Statistics. To ensure students have an appropriate level of breadth, 12 additional 400level Department of Mathematical Sciences courses are required. To ensure students have an appropriate level of depth, two (2) oneyear sequences must be included. The standard freshman and sophomore level courses are also required, such as calculus and linear algebra.
