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 B.A. 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 filed requiring an extensive mathematics background. The arts portion of the degree requires more of a foreign language competency than a Bachelor of Science degree.
