The Department of Mathematics offers a four year program leading to a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics. The program fosters insights and solutions to a variety of problems through symbolic or numerical analysis. The practice of the discipline requires and engenders precise modes of thinking. The use of calculus, numerical methods, probability, statistics and logic is basic to the quantitative methods needed throughout society today.
Students graduating with a degree in mathematics will be able to:
The mathematics minor develops mathematical skills at the calculus level and beyond. With the assistance of a member of the mathematics faculty, a student selects courses that readily complement and enhance his/her major discipline.
Students majoring in mathematics may choose to pursue initial teacher licensure as an early childhood teacher or elementary teacher. Also, mathematics majors may pursue initial licensure as a teacher of mathematics for the middle school or secondary levels. Students seeking any of these licensures must complete a mathematics major, education major and a licensure program in education.
