SRU’s Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree provides a framework to develop knowledge, skills, and characteristics necessary to meet the demands of any mathematically related career. This approach has led to very successful career opportunities for our graduates. Students are required to choose one of four concentrations. Each concentration has the same core mathematics classes, enabling students just beginning to easily change the focus of their studies. The concentration does not limit career options, as the degree is a Mathematics degree, regardless of concentration.
Mathematics BS with Actuarial Science Concentration
If you are interested in risk management, finance, and insurance, consider our concentration in actuarial science. We have over 30 years of experience training and preparing students for success in the field. Many actuaries pass at least two national exams and complete at least one internship before graduation.
Mathematics BS with Mathematical Sciences Concentration
If you are undecided or considering graduate school, consider our concentration in mathematical science. You will get a broad overview of mathematics. This concentration is also good as a second major for students in related STEM fields who want to make themselves more competitive in their fields.
Mathematics BS with Secondary Education Concentration
If you are interested in teaching, consider our concentration in secondary education. This concentration will give you the necessary mathematics training you will need to teach mathematics as well as preparation for training in teaching. Many students on this track will complete their master’s degree in education before entering their careers. SRU future secondary teachers are more qualified in mathematics than any other program in the state, leading to nearly 100% job placement after graduation.
Mathematics BS with Statistics Concentration
If you are interested in working with real-life data, making predictions based on data, and analyzing conclusions involving data, consider our concentration in statistics.
