With a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics is you’ll engage in a broad spectrum of coursework in the mathematical sciences. The program is intended to give you a deep sense of the human story and the philosophical underpinning of mathematics. This is the recommended major if you intend to go into secondary teaching, or if you desire to pursue graduate work in postsecondary teaching or mathematics. There are additional elective options for a B.A. and room for you to incorporate a minor field of study.
- Small class sizes
- Project and research oriented coursework
- Faculty who are experts in their field and who care about their students
Common career fields for mathematics majors include statistician, computer programmer, data analyst and educator. Our graduates are well prepared for graduate-level work, including teacher credential programs and master’s level research programs.
In order to obtain a bachelor’s degree from Fresno Pacific University, students must complete at least 120 units. Along with completing all required courses in their selected area of study, general education requirements must be met by all graduates. See the general education summary in the undergraduate academic catalog for more information.
Select programs may not provide enough units for a student to graduate and therefore an emphasis and/or elective courses must be completed alongside the major. Please see below for emphases related to this area of study.
