Mathematics is used in jobs across a variety of industries as well as in everyday life. With a B.A. in Mathematics you will learn to develop skills in logical thinking and problem solving so you can effectively analyze numerical data or educate the next generation in mathematics.


A B.A. in Mathematics will give you a broad focus of study that would include a variety of liberal arts courses to choose from. This means students can actively shape their education to their interest. A B.A. also requires fewer credits than a B.S. degree.


Career Field
On an average day, mathematicians and statisticians analyze data and apply mathematical and statistical techniques to help solve problems. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “many mathematicians and statisticians work in the federal government and in private science and engineering research companies. They may work on teams with engineers, scientists, and other professionals.”

  • A B.A. in Mathematics can prepare students for a variety of career fields, including in related fields such as education, mathematics, finance, science or nursing.
  • A 26% increase in employment growth of mathematicians will result in about 47,700 new jobs between 2018-2028. Growth is anticipated as businesses and government agencies continue to emphasize the use of big data, which math occupations can analyze. (BLS)


With everyday life and most industries involving at least the basics of mathematics, you will be sure to find a rewarding career in a variety of industries.
