» Bachelor of Science in Mathematics


Our mission is to develop students and faculty as scholars within the global tradition of the mathematical sciences. Our faculty and students continue to expand society's body of knowledge through research in mathematics and statistics. Our community of scholars promotes the interdisciplinary contributions of mathematics to the sciences, technology, and the humanities.

The mathematics degree is designed to be highly flexible, and beyond traditional math courses, students are able to take electives in a variety of topics, including:

  • Computer science
  • Economic science
  • Computational sciences

Research Spotlight

President Daniele Struppa, while he previously served as chancellor, continued his scholarly research focusing on Fourier analysis and its applications to a variety of problems including the algebraic analysis of systems of differential equations, signal processing, and pattern recognition. Some of his recent work applies these ideas and methods to problems ranging from denoising to bio-contaminant protection to proteomics of cancerous cells.
