Mathematics (Statistics Specialization), B.S.



Description
The department offers courses leading to the degree of bachelor of science with a major in mathematics. The bachelor’s degrees have specializations in applied mathematics, discrete mathematics/operations research, statistics, or general mathematics study. The bachelor of science degree is an “expanded major”, which provides a more intense experience in mathematics, computing and science. Students planning to major in mathematics are encouraged to consult an advisor from the Mathematics and Statistics Department to design a program of study in mathematics or statistics.
