The bachelor of arts degree with a major in mathematics provides coursework and training in advanced mathematics. Because of the general nature of this curriculum and opportunity to complement the major with electives from other fields of study, this curriculum provides excellent preparation for graduate study in areas that require good quantitative and/or analytical skills such as philosophy, business, and theology. This liberal arts major also prepares students for a wide variety of career opportunities that require a general bachelor of arts degree. The flexibility of this major enables students to select their mathematics and other electives to meet educational or career goals. Students should include courses in astronomy, chemistry, and physics as general electives.
