Mathematical Studies Major


This program provides an opportunity for students earning degrees in other areas to strengthen their career preparation and portfolio by adding a second major in mathematics that takes their mathematical skill level beyond that offered by a minor. Because mathematics is foundational to physics, engineering, and computer science and is increasingly important in many fields of study such as finance, accounting, economics, biology, medicine, and environmental science, students majoring in these and other fields find that acquiring an additional major in mathematical studies greatly enhances the marketability of their degree. Mathematical Studies is a second major that must be paired with a primary major in another discipline, such as Engineering or Physics, so the required curriculum is more flexible than that of the BS Mathematics degree.

Alternative:

BS Mathematics (if you can fit four more courses into your curriculum, then you can probably upgrade your Mathematical Studies major to a full degree)
