What will I learn?

Mathematics is an excellent major for the student whose immediate objective is to acquire a strong liberal arts education. Graduates may go on to work as an actuary with insurance companies; as a data analyst with pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or health care companies; as a quality assurance specialist with engineering companies; or in government agencies such as FDA, EPA, NSA, or USDA.

The B.A. program is more flexible than the B.S. program. It allows one to specialize in mathematics and at the same time either to follow a broad liberal arts program or to specialize in a second area (possibly even taking a second major). Students wanting to go to graduate school are encouraged to consider the Accelerated Degree Program (ADP) to earn a B.A. and M.A. in 5 years. Strong students can graduate with Disciplinary Honors.

An undergraduate degree in mathematics also provides excellent preparation for graduate studies in many areas, including actuarial sciences, computer science, economics, engineering, law, mathematics, operations research, and statistics. The major can be specialized to allow preparation for any of these goals.
