The Mathematics B.S. program provides students with a sound mathematical education in preparation for academic, industrial or governmental employment as well as advanced study in mathematics or related disciplines while also fostering analytical skills, initiatives, and independence that are useful in problem-solving in general.

Students select from one of six tracks: a general track that provides students with the greatest flexibility in their learning plan and five specialized tracks (Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Economics, Computational, Engineering/Physics, Mathematical Data Analysis) that are designed to provide students with advisement and guidance in developing mathematical ideas and processes in particular areas of application.

**Degree Requirements**
