Topics of Study
In this program, you will learn to use mathematical methods in solving problems. You will focus on analysis of quantities, magnitudes, forms, and their relationships with symbolic logic and language. Pure mathematics is the study of quantitative and qualitative relationships (abstract systems and patterns) expressed in numbers or symbols; it includes algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, probability, and statistics. You will begin with courses in calculus, and later, courses in linear algebra, differential equations, group theory, and symbolic logic.
- A bachelor's degree provides excellent background for many occupations in business and industry, as well as in engineering and government, such as astronometer, statistician, bookkeeper, actuary, or physicist.
- A graduate degree is required for a job as a mathematician in college teaching, research, science, medicine, or law.
