The B.S. degree in mathematics is designed for students planning graduate work or professional careers in mathematics. 

The B.S. degree in applied mathematics is an interdisciplinary major designed for students interested in applications of mathematics in other fields.  In addition to completing coursework in mathematics, students must select a field of concentration in which mathematics is applied and complete coursework in both fields.
