Bachelor of Science w/three options: Mathematics, Statistics and Mathematics Education

The Bachelor of Science degree program offers three options: Mathematics, Statistics, and Mathematics Education. Each program option will afford students an excellent preparation for a career in a mathematically-related field or for graduate study in mathematics, mathematics education, or in a related field. Advanced mathematics classes are generally small, enabling faculty to give each student personal attention as needed.
