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.

Double Major with Elementary Education or Early Childhood Education

Students may choose a double major in mathematics and elementary education, early childhood education or special education for licensure purposes. Appropriate advising materials with suggested course sequences are available.

Minor in Secondary Education (High School, Middle School, or PreK-12 Specialist)

Students may minor in secondary (high school, grades 8-12; middle school, grades 5-8; or PreK-12 specialist) education, with a major in mathematics. Successful completion of these programs will lead to Massachusetts Initial Teacher Licensure. Please refer to the Department of Secondary Education and Professional Programs  for specific teacher licensure and program requirements.

Honors Program

The honors program in mathematics provides highly motivated mathematics majors with opportunities to enhance their academic program through intensive scholarly study and research designed to be of assistance in postgraduate employment or in the pursuit of an advanced degree in mathematics. Contact the Department of Mathematics for further information concerning eligibility and application.
