A B.S. in Mathematics offers students at Southwestern Adventist University a specialized focus in Mathematics. Instead of a broad focus like a B.A. in Mathematics, students will be able to narrow their focus into an area of mathematics they’d like to pursue. This means students will have a more in-depth study of mathematics.


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.”


With a B.S. in Mathematics, you will be prepared for a rewarding career that will open doors to jobs in the science, mathematics, business and medicine industries.
