Mathematics, B.A.(R) or (R, L)*

  • Applied Mathematics Concentration (R, L)
  • Statistics Concentration (R, L)
  • Traditional Mathematics Concentration (R)
  • Mathematics as a Second Major Concentration (R)

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a broad curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Concentrations in Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Traditional Mathematics, and Mathematics as a Second Major are available. (Students seeking secondary education licensure to teach mathematics should take the Traditional Mathematics concentration.) Depending upon the particular course of study taken, the student will be prepared for a career in industry, government, or education. Mathematics and statistics are needed to solve a variety of real-world problems, not only in physical science and engineering, but also in computing, business, economics, medicine, social sciences, and many other fields.

REAL Curriculum

This major’s fulfillment of the REAL Curriculum differs by concentration. All four concentrations fulfill the R area through courses that apply scientific and quantitative reasoning to questions about the natural world, mathematics, or related areas. These requirements are accomplished through a wide variety of courses that train students to logically analyze and solve problems in a variety of mathematical areas. The Applied Mathematics and Statistics concentrations also fulfill the L area through courses that apply mathematical knowledge and skill to explore how mathematics is used in professional practice. Students develop these skills by applying programming and numerical solutions to analyze practical applications of mathematics and developing statistical models of real-life data.
