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.
At UMass Lowell, students pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics 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.
Offered by UMass Lowell’s Department of Mathematical Sciences, this flexible program features a robust curriculum designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the science of mathematics. Topics covered include calculus, physics, discrete structures, applied statistics, propositional logic, methods of proof, relations and functions, applications to computer science and more.
UMass Lowell’s B.S. in Math requires more science courses than the B.A. in Math, but the mathematical content included in each of these degree programs is the same.
Students must complete 120 credits to earn a B.S. in Mathematics degree. To meet the needs of busy adults, math courses are conveniently scheduled on campus in the evenings, and some electives are available online.
* The purpose of concentration electives is to allow students, with the assistance of their Faculty and Student Support Specialist, to take advantage of the many state-of-the-art courses available at the University: science, information technology, engineering, decision science, actuarial science, operations research, mathematical biology, bioinformatics, economics, computer science, etc. A student may take a maximum of 15 credits of math courses (MATH prefix) as concentration electives. MATH.2830 and MATH.3630 cannot be used as math electives.
** Electives may be chosen from any courses from the University. However, no more than 60 mathematics credits (beyond MATH.1200 and MATH.1230) can be counted toward graduation. All mathematics courses have prefix MATH.
# Analysis I & II requirements: One basic analysis course (MATH.4030, MATH.4110, MATH.5010) and one additional analysis course not used to fulfill another requirement (MATH.3010, MATH.3220, MATH.3620, MATH.4030, MATH.4110, MATH.4130, MATH.4200, MATH.4210, MATH.4500).
Many 5000-level mathematics courses are within the grasp of upper level undergraduate students. Refer to the day school schedule of classes for graduate course listings. Many graduate courses are offered in the late afternoon/early evening time frame.
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.
