The Department of Mathematics offers courses leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Science in Education.
Programs are planned to meet the current recommendations of the undergraduate curriculum in mathematical sciences proposed by the Mathematical Association of America, and the guidelines for the preparation of teachers adopted by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is recommended for students who plan to pursue mathematical study at the doctoral level. It is also recommended, in conjunction with the teacher certification program, for strong students who plan to become teachers of mathematics, particularly in higher education.
The Bachelor of Science degree is recommended for students who plan to pursue work in industry immediately after graduation or who plan to pursue further mathematical study.
The Bachelor of Science in Education is recommended for most students who plan to become secondary or middle school teachers of mathematics.
