Mathematics, B.S.

Juneau

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics provides a solid foundation in mathematics. In addition to taking the core and interdisciplinary courses, students will also take part in a seminar dedicated to undergraduate research during their last two years. After obtaining the degree, students will have opportunities in secondary education, graduate studies and direct entry into the job market. Each student will be advised by faculty to achieve a specific program tailored for the student’s goals. Program assessment plans and student learning outcomes are posted at the Program Assessment website. Additional information may be found at uas.alaska.edu/math.
