The plan in Mathematical Science leads to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. The undergraduate degree is designed to prepare the student for a career in industry or education, or to prepare the student for graduate study in mathematics, statistics, operations research or other mathematically based disciplines. The plan includes courses in both the classical foundations of mathematics and the modern concern with numerical issues spawned by the computer. Students who seek teaching certification should consider following alternative mathematics degree plans that include teaching certification (4-8 and 7-12).
