Mathematics, Advanced (BA)

Mathematics, Advanced (BA)

The bachelors of arts degree in advanced mathematics provides students with a strong mathematical foundation in problem solving and mathematical proof. Extensive mathematics is completed beyond the requirements for the math bachelor of arts degree. The arts portion of the degree requires more of a foreign language competency than a bachelor of science degree.

Material is presented at an honors level to challenge students so that they can advance in their mathematical understanding. Program admittance is at the discretion of the department, and students enrolling are often looking to transition into graduate studies in a field requiring an extensive mathematics background.

Students may also complete this major through Lyman Briggs College.
