Science & Mathematics

Mathematical Studies

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Analyze problems with global impact.

Develop the ability to look at real-world problems with an analytical eye and take action. Use math as a lens to examine global issues and social responsibility. Focus on pattern, quantity, space, and change to visualize and interpret complex challenges. Find new and empowering uses for mathematics as you prepare for careers in business, computer science, data management, education, finance, and more. 

Our strong reputation for preparing New England’s top teachers means mathematics and education double majors will be ready to inspire a love for mathematics in the next generation of students. Wherever you grow your career, you'll blaze a trail and gain a reputation as a deep thinker, innovator, and creative contributor.

Use math to graph the effects of climate change. Create a spreadsheet that shows the cost effectiveness of a social program. Or chart the impact of refugees on government services. As a math major at Lesley, you’ll master strategies for analyzing and interpreting data and for communicating ideas effectively, whether numerically, graphically, or verbally. 

Build the knowledge and practical skills that are in high demand in today’s quantitatively-driven economy. As a result of your professional internships and research experiences in Greater Boston at places like the Museum of Science, Boston Financial, New England Aquarium, Boston Consulting Group, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, and many more, graduate with access to a wide range of careers. Bring your enthusiasm for math into fields such as business, international relations, science, and teaching.
