Mathematics

Our Undergraduate Programs

Our programs are intended to serve students who plan to pursue careers related to engineering and science, or who plan to enter graduate study in any area of the mathematical sciences (which includes actuarial science and statistics).

We offer three undergraduate programs of study are the Bachelor of Science in mathematics (MTH), the Bachelor of Arts in mathematics (MTA), and the Bachelor of Science in applied mathematical economics (MTE). 

 

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

Mathematics is the study of shape and form, of numbers and patterns, of concrete examples and abstract generalizations. As a discipline, mathematics is not easy to categorize, but forms the foundation of science and engineering.

A B.S. in mathematics prepares you to pursue careers in engineering and science or to enter graduate study in any area of the mathematical sciences, including actuarial science and statistics.  This degree culminates in a mathematics capstone project on a topic in theoretical or applied mathematics, with opportunities  to engage in cross-disciplinary, team-oriented research experiences.

Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

Mathematics plays an unmistakably important role in modern society and the world today. Research and discovery within mathematics has engaged minds for hundreds of years, and the field offers abundant opportunities to further your understanding of mathematics and apply your knowledge to real-world situations.

A B.A. in mathematics allows you to develop the skills necessary for careers in business, education or the social sciences.  You can also choose to share your interest in mathematics with students by combining this degree with a degree from the School of Education and Health Sciences to satisfy the requirements for teacher licensure in the state of Ohio.  This degree culminates in a capstone project on a topic in mathematics or mathematics education with opportunities  to engage in cross-disciplinary, team-oriented research experiences.

Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematical Economics

Why do people make the choices they do? Through applied mathematical economics, you'll look for the answer by analyzing problems of the national and international economies, as well as problems faced by business firms and consumers.

A B.S. in applied mathematics economics allows you to develop the skills necessary for careers in economics, finance or actuarial science or the social sciences or to enter graduate study in economics or financial mathematics.  The applied mathematical economics program is offered jointly by the Department of Economics and Finance and the Department of Mathematics.  You don't have to wait until after graduation to begin using your skills and analyzing the world around you. By participating in the internship or cooperative education program, you can investigate your career interests while gaining work experience as an undergraduate.   This degree culminates in a capstone project in economics or financial mathematics with opportunities  to engage in cross-disciplinary, team-oriented research experiences.
