Bachelor of Arts

  • Major 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.
  • Major 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.

Bachelor of Science

  • Major in Mathematics
    The BS in Mathematics is appropriate for students planning graduate studies in mathematics or professional pursuits in the field of mathematics. The BS requires the completion of one of seven options: mathematics, actuarial science, applied mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering, or computer science. More information on these options.
  • Major in Mathematical Finance
    The BS in Mathematical Finance is designed for students who are interested in finance and have the ability to dive deeply into mathematics. The program also provides an alternative for mathematics majors who find that they prefer a business-related program rather than a program in abstract mathematics.
  • 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 BS 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.



Recently offered courses include abstract 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, real analysis, set theory, and topology, in addition to many lower-division courses for majors and non-majors.
