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 required math courses in the B.A. in Math program are offered on campus in 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.
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.
All bachelor's degree candidates are required to earn a minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average (GPA), to present a minimum of 120 semester hours, to fulfill the residency requirements, to conform to the general regulations and requirements of the University, to satisfy the regulations and academic standards of the colleges which exercise jurisdiction over the degrees for which they are matriculating, to satisfy the curriculum requirements established by the departments or programs in their major, and to complete the University's Core Curriculum requirements, which are listed within the program's curriculum outline. For additional information regarding the University's general policies and procedures, transfer credit information and residency requirements; please refer to our Academic Policies & Procedures.
