Mathematics

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.

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 communicating ideas effectively, whether numerically, graphically, or verbally. Pursue hands-on collaborative research into emerging topics such as Game Theory, alongside our expert faculty.

Build the knowledge and practical skills that are in high demand in today’s tech-driven economy. As a result of your professional internships and research experiences in Greater Boston, graduate with access to a wide range of careers. Bring your enthusiasm for math into fields such as business, international relations, science, and teaching.

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.

"I want to show the power of math."
