Mathematics Major, BS


The BS program in Mathematics is a specialized program that helps prepare students for employment in quantitative or technical fields (such as actuarial science, computer science, finance, operations research, statistics, and science) or for graduate study.

University Core – (44-55)

MAT 131 Calculus I (4 credits) may be used to satisfy Math core requirement; otherwise it must be taken for major credit. Also see Auxiliary Courses below for department-approved arts and science credits that may satisfy University Core.

Required Auxiliary Courses

Mathematics majors with dept. approval may choose a minor from a variety of subject areas (including accounting, actuarial science, biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, management science, physics, and statistics). A hybrid minor is also possible. Note: Auxiliary minors in a Dyson College liberal arts and science discipline satisfy applicable University Core requirements and/or Open Elective credits, but minors in other disciplines (e.g., computer or management science) satisfy only Open Elective credits.
