General Information

The Department of Mathematics offers the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences, with three different options. Option 1 of the mathematics major – “Mathematics” – offers students the most comprehensive collection of mathematics courses and is well suited for students intending to pursue graduate studies in a mathematical science. Option 2 – “Applied Mathematics” – combines a core of mathematics courses with a concentration of courses from another scientific discipline. It is a good choice for students preparing for careers in business and industry, intending to attend graduate school in a quantitative area (such as biostatistics, economics, operations research, or actuarial science), or wishing to participate in a dual-degree program in engineering. Option 3 – “Mathematics with Teacher Certification” – prepares students to teach in public and private secondary schools. This option is an approved program for the Georgia Teacher’s Professional Certificate for secondary mathematics (grades 6-12).

The department also offers a wide range of services to Armstrong students. Several introductory courses are available to satisfy general education requirements as well as prerequisites in other major programs. Intermediate level courses for non-majors are available to enhance the quantitative skills of students in a variety of disciplines. A minor in mathematics or in statistics can be designed to complement students’ major programs. A certificate in Actuarial Sciences is available for those interested in pursuing a career as an actuary.
