Bachelor’s Degrees

Applied Mathematics Major
Applied mathematics majors learn to solve problems from a variety of disciplines by developing mathematical models, applying computational algorithms, and analyzing results. Students choose from four concentrations: applied mathematics, applied mathematics: actuarial science (What does an actuary do?), applied mathematics: computer science, and applied mathematics: physics.
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Applied Mathematics: Actuarial Science
  • Applied Mathematics: Computer Science
  • Applied Mathematics: Physics
Mathematics Major
The Mathematics Program is designed to teach the student proficiency in problem solving and logical reasoning.
  • Applied Math
  • Pure Mathematics
  • Secondary Math Education
Physics Major
Physics majors gain analytical skills and problem-solving abilities that prepare students for further studies in material science, geophysics, biophysics, electronics, chemistry, and aerospace.
