Within the context of a liberal arts education, the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Mathematics is designed to encourage students to think critically, to develop quantitative analytical reasoning, to understand mathematical thought and knowledge, to develop the ability to use this understanding to produce and communicate mathematics, and to apply these skills in graduate degree programs in mathematics and/or careers requiring expertise in mathematics. Students will also develop skills essential to a variety of professions including economics, engineering, finance, chemistry, physics, genetics, ecology, actuarial science, bioinformatics, medicine, law, software design and statistics and computer science.
Teaching Certification Programs
Students are able to add on initial certification while completing a bachelor's degree in mathematics. In addition to the degree with certification program, a post-baccalaureate program is available for those already holding a bachelor's-level degree to pursue a certification area in mathematics. These certifications may be completed in three semesters. Click here to find out more about the Teacher Preparation Program at YHC.
