Programs and Courses
- BA in Mathematics
This program is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of mathematics and a strong liberal arts foundation. It is appropriate for students planning to pursue graduate studies in another area, such as business, engineering or computer science.
- BS in Mathematics
The BS in Mathematics is appropriate for students planning graduate studies in mathematics and professional pursuits in the field of mathematics. The BS has an options requirement – areas of specialized learning. Choose from: mathematics, actuarial science, applied mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering or computer science.
- BA in Mathematics Education
Courses in this program lead toward New York state initial teacher certification, mathematics, grades 7-12. Secondary education programs are designed to blend on-campus preparation with field experiences in a variety of school settings, culminating in full-time student teaching. Literacy, multicultural education, and information technology are integrated throughout all aspects of the program. The program conforms with the New York State Learning Standards in Mathematics, Science and Technology and with the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
- BS Major in Computer Science and Mathematics
For students wishing to enhance their job finding potential in either field, the joint BS in Math and Computer Science requires the completion of 43 credits in Computer Science and 37 credits in Mathematics.”
In addition to the B.S. in Mathematics with a concentration in actuarial science, we offer courses approved for Validation by Education Experience (VEE) by the Society of Actuaries in applied statistical methods, corporate finance and economics.
The math minor consists of the successful completion of 18 semester hours including:
- Three semesters of calculus (MATH 71, 72 and 73)
- 3 credits of intermediate or advanced mathematics courses numbered 100 or above
- 3 credits of advanced mathematics courses numbered 110 or above
At least six hours must be in residence.
Recently offered courses include advanced calculus, algebra, combinatorics and graph theory, complex analysis, computer graphics, differential equations, differential geometry, dynamical systems, engineering mathematics, geometry, linear algebra, mathematical problem solving, number theory, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, set theory, and topology, in addition to many lower-division courses for majors and non-majors.
