You are here


The Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics encourages you to think critically, develop quantitative analytical reasoning, and understand mathematical thought and knowledge. Our program also develops your ability to use this understanding to produce and communicate mathematics and apply these concepts in the real world. These skills make mathematics majors a valuable commodity.

Mathematics is not learned only in the classroom. There are opportunities for students to participate in the Math Club and other activities to enhance the learning experience. Our faculty participate in research to keep their insight current, maintain outside projects to inform their course curriculum, and follow the latest technology to update their classroom instruction.

Our mathematics majors develop skills essential to a variety of professions and also go on to a broad range of graduate programs. Your degree can lead to opportunities in economics, engineering, finance, chemistry, physics, genetics, ecology, actuarial science, bioinformatics, medicine, law, software design, statistics and computer science.

Minor Program

A minor in mathematics is an excellent supplement for any discipline of study. In particular, those pursuing careers in business, science, technology and engineering benefit from this added mathematical experience. The minor is designed to allow the experience to be tailored for maximum benefit with regard to future goals.

The minor in mathematics at Young Harris College affords students an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills that are necessary for the study of advanced mathematical topics and the ability to use more advanced mathematics in real-world applications.


You can add initial certification while completing your bachelor’s degree or a post-baccalaureate program once you graduate. These certifications may be completed in three semesters. Find out more about the Teacher Preparation Program at YHC.
