The B.A. in Mathematics is designed for students who desire to study mathematics with a flexible approach in the choice of courses. It is similar to the B.S. degree in mathematics, but without being limited to a particular concentration. Students discover the creative side of the subject and see how mathematics is used to solve important problems.

Graduates go on to careers in banking, insurance, consulting, government, and retail.
