Department of
Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics offers the Bachelor of Arts
(BA) in mathematics and the Bachelor of Science (BS) in mathematics that has
flexibility to allow the student to concentrate in either mathematics or applied
mathematics. The two programs are designed to produce graduates with a solid foundation in
calculus, abstract and linear algebra, probability and statistics, and real analysis, as
well as some knowledge in other areas of mathematics. Graduates of these programs will
demonstrate an ability to solve problems creatively and effectively, to reason logically
and to apply mathematical skills and modern technology in positions in industry or the
professions, or to continue their studies at the graduate level.
Expected Outcomes
Graduates will have:
 an understanding of calculus and an ability to use calculus in
applications
 knowledge of algebraic structures
 knowledge of the real numbers, functions, the topological
properties of R, differentiation, and integration
 knowledge and ability, to apply probability density functions
 knowledge of appropriate mathematical models
 the ability to think critically
 the ability to understand mathematical arguments and to
construct mathematical proofs
 the ability to use computational devices and software in
problem solving situations
 communication to acquire, develop, and convey mathematical
knowledge
