Program goals

Recipients of an undergraduate degree in mathematics study:

  • real analysis in one and several variables,
  • linear algebra and the theory of vector spaces,
  • several mathematical topics at the junior and senior level,
  • in
    depth at least one advanced topic of mathematics, an approved two-course

In addition, students acquire the ability and skills to:

  • develop and write direct proofs, proofs by
    contradiction, and proofs by induction,
  • formulate definitions and give examples and
  • read mathematics without supervision,
  • follow and explain algorithms,
  • apply mathematics to other fields.

Finally, recipients of an undergraduate degree in mathematics learn about research in mathematics.
