# Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics provides an opportunity for students to fulfill their potential and become contributing members of society in fields that are becoming increasingly important and in which there is growing demand. Students who complete this program will have the skills in logic, problem-solving and data analysis and the familiarity with mathematical concepts necessary for success in such fields as actuarial science, engineering, operations research, data processing, computer science, and Education. In addition, a broad-based background in mathematics has applicability for study or employment in fields outside of mathematics and science, e.g., banking, law, and economics.

### Student Learning Outcomes of Program

- Students will be able to effectively apply critical thinking skills to mathematically model and solve problems.
- Students will be able to critically interpret numerical and graphical data.
- Students will be able to read and construct mathematical arguments and proofs.
- Students will be able to effectively use computer technology to solve problems and create models.
- Students will be able to demonstrate effective oral and written communication of mathematical concepts and applications.
- Students will be able to demonstrate applications of mathematical knowledge to a mathematically-related career or post-baccalaureate studies.

Students who are non-majors in Mathematics will be able to:

- Effectively apply appropriate quantitative tools and logic to analyze and synthesize information for problem solving in specific career fields as well as common life experiences.
