# Mathematics Major, Bachelor of Science (BS)

The program leading to a BS in Mathematics is rigorous, but flexible. All students enroll in the core of 54 credits of mathematics, and also choose at least three electives in mathematics. Then, there is a choice of electives outside of mathematics that gives students a background in fields where mathematics is heavily used in industry and government. Therefore, this degree prepares students for a career in industry or government or for graduate study in mathematics or a closely related field.
