Mathematics B.A. Degree with Concentration in Mathematical Structures and Applications

The B.A. in Mathematics with a Concentration in Mathematical Structures and Applications provides a solid mathematical foundation for students who are interested in the general field of Mathematics. It prepares students for a variety of careers in business, finance, and research. It offers an excellent plan of study for transfer students and an achievable double major, particularly attractive to economics, computer science, or business students.

Students should consult with their faculty advisor and use the Degree Evaluation tool to receive an accurate assessment regarding fulfillment of graduation requirements. All major requirements are in addition to the LAC requirements.

Note: Students must earn a C or better in all major courses numbered 300 or higher OR a C+ average in all such courses.
