Department of Mathematics Announces new Bachelor’s Program

(May 6, 2021) Beginning in fall semester 2021, Kennesaw State University (KSU) will begin offering a newly-designed bachelor’s degree program in Mathematics. The program of study leading to the “Bachelor of Science with a major in Mathematics” offers formal training in problem solving, critical and quantitative thinking and logical argument. It also provides a solid foundation in the application of analytical, geometrical, and numerical methods to real world problems. The program is highly customizable. In addition to a core set of mathematics courses, the program also requires completion of a concentration or minor that prepares the student for graduate study or for employment in various mathematics and statistics-related fields. The goal of this major is to assist students in acquiring both a deep understanding of mathematics and an ability to apply it to the science and industry.

The new program will replace the two current “B.S. in Mathematics” and “B.S. in Computational and Applied Mathematics” programs. Students who have already declared majors in these two program will have the option to switch their major to the new program or to complete the major programs they have already started by the summer 2023 semester.
