Why Choose Mathematics?

The mathematics component of the Bachelor of Arts program surveys the classical areas of mathematicsanalysis, algebra, and geometryand their history. Courses in statistics and in computer science provide a taste of two relatively young branches of the mathematical sciences. In addition, a broad choice of electives allows you to either pursue greater depth in one of these areas, or to sample a broader range of courses in mathematics, statistics, and computing.

The Bachelor of Arts program features breadth and flexibility. For instance, there is a Related Course Requirement specifically designed to accommodate subject matter outside the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and even outside both the College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Other elective courses can be chosen with essentially no restriction. To examine the remarkable variety of possibilities, see the Academic Catalog; listed there are hundreds of courses you can select from in this program.
