    Degree offered: Bachelor of Science 

    Minor offered: Mathematics 

    See also: Integrated Mathematics Education - Grades 7-12  

    The programs in mathematics are designed to aid students in discovering mathematical patterns and applying the knowledge gained in these investigations to a variety of mathematical problems. Each of the programs introduces students to the major branches of mathematics, both pure and applied, and calls students to a deeper understanding of the nature of mathematics. Students may pursue one of the following two options: (i) a traditional mathematics major designed to prepare students for careers in industry, government, and for additional study in graduate school, or (ii) an integrated mathematics teaching major designed to prepare students for a teaching career at the secondary school level.
