Learn the foundational mathematical concepts needed to help advance science and technology, business and economics, health and medicine, and other aspects of our modern society.

Mathematicians are at the forefront of combating some of the biggest challenges of our time — the climate crisis, natural resource management, and even the modeling behind predicting the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The mathematics bachelor’s program prepares you in a diverse array of mathematical areas such as abstract analysis, modern algebra, probability and statistics, computational mathematics, data science, and more. You'll gain a broad background appropriate for the pursuit of a job in industry, while also attaining the depth and rigor required for graduate studies in mathematics or related fields.

In this program, you’ll develop the skills and understanding needed to utilize complex algorithms to predict and analyze uncertain events such as weather, develop cryptographic methods for secure communication, extract insights by exploring patterns and intelligible information from large datasets, study the dynamics of pharmaceuticals in the body, and even forecast public opinions.
