What is a Bachelor of Science in mathematics?
This degree program gives students a broad foundation in the traditional, central fields of pure mathematics, such as algebra, analysis and geometry. Core program requirements are complemented by an enticing selection of mathematics electives that let students tailor their programs toward graduate study in mathematics or science or a career in business or industry.
Why study mathematics at UNH?
You’ll work with a diverse faculty of accomplished mathematicians in a department where pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematics education and statistics are integrated, giving you exposure to many different facets of knowledge. Our professors have won prestigious honors, including a Grammy Award and a MacArthur “genius” grant. Upperlevel mathematics classes tend to be small, so you’ll enjoy close connections to professors as they delve into the intricacies of advanced ideas. This department has produced many winners of the prestigious Department of Defense SMART Scholarship.
