Description of the Program
Mathematics  BS
Bachelor of Science
MathPhysics Department Website The major in Mathematics introduces students to a field whose origins date from the dawn of history and whose everincreasing pervasiveness and importance in science, engineering, business and finance renders it a veritable masterkey to our understanding of the world about us. The degree in mathematics opens many doors to students upon graduation to a job in business, industry or government, to certification as a teacher, to graduate study in mathematics, statistics and computer science, among many other fields to a professional school in business or law. Moreover, the major in mathematics serves as a gateway not only to a job or career, but also to a world where logic and imagination combine to create timeless beauty and truth. What distinguishes the BS from the BA in Mathematics is the requirement of 7 credits in Computer Science and that of 4 additional credits in Physics. Although the number of generalelective credits is thereby reduced by 11, the remaining 21 credits could still allow for a minor in many fields.To complete the mathematics major, a minimum of 120 credits is required, the last 30 of which must be earned at La Roche College. The required course work consists of the following:  46 credits in the mathematics core
 7 credits in Computer Science
 12 credits in Physics
 34 credits in CORE Curriculum courses
 21 credits of General Electives
