Your Future in Mathematics Starts Here
Mathematics has long played an integral role in advances in science and technology. And in today's high-tech, information-based economy, a background in mathematics is a highly valued commodity. Virtually every industry in the 21st century employs professionals with degrees in mathematics.
At UMass Lowell, students in the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics program develop valuable and transferable skills in critical thinking, quantitative analysis and problem solving — skills that are necessary for success in a broad range of fields and a variety of positions such as statistician, computer programmer, financial analyst, market researcher, quality control analyst, teacher and more.
The Bachelor of Arts in Math program also allows students increased flexibility when it comes to course selection. Less science courses are required for this program than for the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Earning a B.A. in Mathematics is, therefore, more suitable for students with interests outside the sciences, in areas such as business, economics and philosophy.
Math Programs Made for Busy Adults
Required math courses are available on campus during the evenings, making it easier than ever for busy adults to pursue or complete their degree while working. Required liberal arts courses for the program are offered in an online format, enabling students to work around their busy schedules.
120 credits minimum. Note: Students who do not have the necessary foundation in Precalculus Math will be required to take MATH.1225 Precalculus Mathematics I and MATH.1230 Precalculus Mathematics II in addition to the courses listed below, resulting in 126 credits. No Math course can be used to satisfy two different Math requirements.
Undergraduate Degree Requirements
