Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

Since mathematics is both a cultural and a technical field of study, the curriculum is planned with the following objective:

  • to introduce students to mathematics as an important area of human thought;
  • to prepare students for careers in a wide array of industries and academia;
  • to give preparation to students for graduate study in mathematics and related fields;
  • to prepare students planning to teach mathematics at the secondary level;
  • to serve the needs of students in fields which rely on mathematics, e.g., experimental sciences, social sciences and education.

Educator Licensure

Students interested in seeking Massachusetts teacher licensure should refer to the appropriate department links for options and requirements for second majors: Elementary and Early Childhood Education Secondary Education and Professional Programs , or Special Education .
