# Mathematics, BS

The program of study for the BS in Mathematics is designed to prepare the graduate for a career in a field that employs professionals with mathematical and/or computer science competence. At the same time, it provides for the student to add courses that will prepare him/her to pursue a graduate degree in either mathematics or computer science.
