A Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics provides a strong foundational core for students who wish to pursue graduate studies in pure or applied mathematics; to pursue a career in applied mathematics (e.g., statistics, computer science, operations research, and actuarial mathematics) immediately after obtaining a B.S.; or to teach mathematics in middle school and high school. The courses taken to satisfy the degree requirements are taught viewing mathematics as part of God's creation, and there is a concentrated effort to integrate faith and learning.
Upon completion of the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, students will be able to:
Demonstrate the abilities to think abstractly, problem solve, and prove theorems.
Demonstrate the abilities to problem solve, apply mathematical theory to practical situations, and use math-related technology.
Develop mathematical content mastery, according to their concentration, for graduate work, high school teaching, or employment in industry.
Develop a pattern of personal integrity and the ability to articulate the implications of a biblical worldview concerning mathematics.
After diverse interactions with faculty and students, the student should exhibit the abilities to problem-solve in groups, and successfully communicate mathematical ideas.
