Undergraduate

B.S. Mathematics

Mathematics is the science of numbers and the abstract formulation of their operations. Quantitative skills acquired through this study are useful in career fields which include computer science, business, actuarial science, engineering, life and physical sciences, medicine, and research. A B.S. in mathematics leads to many career paths. Actuaries concentrate on the study of actuarial science and usually work for the government, an insurance agency, or a consulting firm. They interpret statistics to determine the likelihood of injury, sickness, death, or loss of property among various population groups and develop insurance rates and plans for these groups. This program is offered only at the Clarion campus.
