Bachelor of Science: Mathematics
Cultivate Your Analytical Thinking
Mathematics offers a universal, undisputable means to communicate complex ideas, creating opportunities in almost every field – from business to healthcare, education, government, forensics and national security.
A bachelor's degree in mathematics prepares graduates for careers in business, industry and government, and for actuarial sciences, systems analysis and financial mathematics that are expected to grow rapidly.
Access to bachelor's degrees for more people, where potential trumps privilege, and tenacity and commitment matter more than one’s academic past. Honors Program? We’ve got you covered there, too.
Attentive education that focuses on your success with faculty mentorships that linger after graduation. Standards are high, but you’ve got this with access to tutoring and professors who are engaged in your success.
GGC’s innovative practices, caring culture and affordable tuition educate today's careers, and change the future for students at all levels, of all ages, from all walks of life.
Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, space, relation, change and various topics of pattern, form and entity and goes far beyond the traditional math topics studied in high school. Mathematicians seek out patterns and other quantitative aspects of the entities they study, whether these entities are numbers, spaces, natural sciences, computers or abstract concepts. Mathematics students focus on the basics of analysis and algebra, together with topology, number theory, logic, numerical analysis, dynamica systems and differential equations.
This concentration is for students interested in the application of mathematics to another field or discipline. For example, applied mathematics in biology includes such topics as bioinformatics and combinatorial drug design that are used in the pharmaceutical industry. Graduates are prepared to enter graduate or professional school, or go directly into the workforce.
This concentration is for students interested in teaching mathematics at the secondary level, grades 8-12. With a major in mathematics, they will also be prepared to enter the broader workforce and to pursue graduate or professional school.
This concentration is for students interested in theoretical mathematics. Graduates will be prepared to enter graduate or professional school, or go directly into the workforce.
