# Mathematics

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics provides students additional breadth and depth of knowledge of mathematics beyond the course of study required for the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics, as well as the chance to pursue a minor related to mathematics. The program prepares students for either graduate school or an immediate career in business, industry, or government.

A decision to pursue the BS in Mathematics should be made in a student's first year of study if the program is to be completed in four years. Students should both meet with a mathematics advisor and take MATH 151 Calculus I as soon as possible.

The BS in Mathematics is not intended for secondary of middle school teacher certification. Students seeking mathematics teacher certification should complete either the Secondary Teaching Option or the Middle/Junior High Teaching Option of the BA in Mathematics, along with the BS in Secondary Education.
