The Department of Mathematics offers two liberal arts programs leading to the bachelor of arts and the bachelor of science respectively. The B.S. program includes additional course requirements, and a thesis option, not found in the B.A. These curricula serve a variety of students, including those who plan to work in mathematics after graduation, and those who plan to go to graduate school. Students in these curricula are encouraged to combine their study of mathematics with a second major or a minor.

Opportunities for persons with liberal arts degrees in mathematics exist in government and private industry, particularly in the areas of actuarial science, statistics, and mathematical analysis of computational and other scientific systems. Persons with bachelor’s degrees in mathematics are encouraged to pursue advanced degrees (master’s and Ph.D.) at other institutions in preparation for even more rewarding opportunities. Persons with bachelor’s degrees are also eligible to apply for admission to the master of science for teachers (M.S.T.) program at SUNY Plattsburgh as a route to adolescence school teaching.

The department also offers, in conjunction with the Teacher Education Unit, a combined B.A./M.S.T. Mathematics/Adolescence Education program to prepare students to teach mathematics, grades 7-12. This program is fully accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEACS). See the Combined Programs section of this catalog for more about this program.
