Mathematics

Bachelor of Science (BA)

The possibilities are infinite.

Does your mind work in numerical ways? Does the sight of a complex math problem cause you to reach for the nearest pencil? Are you fascinated by statistics, patterns, and formulas? Do you see the crucial role of numbers at the core of just about everything? 

Lesley’s mathematics major will prepare you for a deep understanding of mathematics and its varied applications across many fields, then help you decide how and where you can take it. 

Mathematics majors often go into the business and finance worlds, with Wall Street increasingly putting a premium on those who can analyze and predict the direction of stocks, commodities, foreign exchanges and more. But that’s just one path you could take with this incredibly versatile (and lucrative) major. 

You could become an actuary, an engineer, an accountant, go into computer science, statistics, or you could become a math teacher, too.

A degree in mathematics can truly open you up to a nearly incalculable number of opportunities. Of course, with your degree you’ll be equipped to calculate them pretty quickly.
