B.S. in Mathematics - Traditional Track
The traditional track for a B.S. in Mathematics is designed to incorporate both pure and applied mathematics within a strong liberal arts framework and to provide students with preparation for work in business, industry, government, or for graduate work in the mathematical sciences.
B.S. in Mathematics - Actuarial Track
Actuarial science is the discipline that applies mathematical and statistical methods to assess risk in the insurance and finance industries. Actuarial mathematics deals with the mathematics of uncertainty and risk. Actuaries are professionals who are qualified in this field, and must demonstrate their qualifications by passing a series of professional examinations of the Casualty Actuarial Society and the Society of Actuaries. Using their broad knowledge of statistics, finance, and business, actuaries help design insurance policies, pension plans, and other financial strategies in a manner which will help ensure that the plans are maintained on a sound financial basis.
B.S. in Mathematics - Biomathematics Track
Biomathematics is the use of mathematical models to help understand phenomena in biology. Biomathematics is a field that is undergoing a major resurgence, since mathematics is necessary for understanding many areas of study in biology. For example, biomedical imaging, cellular neurobiology, comparative genetics, epidemic modeling, population genetics, and toxicology all have mathematics as an essential part of their theory. Opportunities abound for graduate studies, as well as research jobs in the pharmaceutical industry and government laboratories.
