Bachelor of Arts in Mathematical Sciences

The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematical Sciences is designed to prepare students for careers using mathematics, operations research, and statistics in the fields of teaching, research, industry, insurance, and management or for graduate study in Mathematical Sciences or related areas. Those who plan to teach mathematics or work in engineering or the physical sciences should choose mathematics courses as electives. Those who wish to apply mathematical methods to life sciences, social sciences, or business fields should choose operations research or statistics courses. Any of these choices provide excellent preparation for graduate work in fields that need quantitative skills.
