BA in Mathematics
The Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics requires a minimum of 120 hours of coursework, with a minimum of 35 credits of MATH courses, including those in a specific BA concentration. In addition, 18 hours of course work in a specific related area must be included.
BA in Mathematics with a concentration in Pure Mathematics
Prepares students for further study in mathematics at the graduate level, for jobs in the service or public sectors where a high level of quantitative skills is prerequisite, particularly in the financial industry, or with further pedagogical training for careers as secondary educators. The concentration provides the foundations for an appreciation of the broad area of modern mathematics namely topology/geometry, algebra and analysis.
BA in Mathematics with a concentration in Applied Mathematics
Prepares students for further study in mathematics at the graduate level, for jobs in industrial, service or public sectors where a high level of quantitative skills is prerequisite. Examples of such career path include technical mathematicians, and financial analysts. The concentration provides the foundation for an understanding of the theoretical and computational principles of applied mathematics with an emphasis on modeling real world phenomena.
BA in Mathematics with a concentration in Statistics
Prepares students for further study in statistics at the graduate level, for jobs in industrial, service or public sectors where a knowledge of statistics is prerequisite. Examples of such career path include business or financial analysts, data scientists, or market researchers. The concentration provides the foundation for understanding of both the theory and applications of statistics, including the application of statistical methodology to real world problems and the proficient use of statistics software.
For the Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics, a minimum of 35 credits of MATH courses, including those in a specific BA concentration must be completed. In addition, 18 hours of course work in a specific related area must be included.
