Benefits of the BS in Mathematics
What Students Gain
Students of mathematics at MUM acquire quantitative skills, problem-solving ability, and clarity of thinking and reasoning that provide the basis for success and leadership in many careers.
Depending on the track taken, graduates are qualified to pursue Master’s level study at institutions of higher learning in mathematics, computer science, education, business administration, and other mathematics-related disciplines. They enter a wide variety of technology-based careers. Many of our graduates have gone on to successful careers in mathematics itself, in engineering, physics, software engineering, information technology, teaching, accounting, management, and other areas.
The Mathematics Department offers a BS degree in Mathematics in a choice of three tracks:
A complete foundational experience in mathematics, together with a senior project in an advanced area of mathematics.
Mathematics and Physics
This track blends physics courses into the mathematics curriculum and includes a senior project in a physics-related area.
Mathematics and Computer Science
This track blends computer science courses into the mathematics curriculum and leads directly into the Master of Science in Computer Science at MUM.
