Studying Mathematics at Regis
The Mathematics major is designed to allow (and even encourage) double majors or major/minor combinations with other fields. Computer Science, any of the natural sciences, Finance or Economics, and Education are all obvious natural combinations, but we have had many successful students that combine with majors or minors in English, Religious Studies, and Fine Arts.
The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree provides students with a broad knowledge of theoretical and applied mathematics. Calculus I, II and III provide a solid foundation of mathematical theory and problem solving. Advanced mathematical thinking is developed in the required courses Logic and Proof, Linear Algebra, and Abstract Algebra. Beyond these required courses students can tailor the degree to their interests.
We encourage undergraduate research with faculty as a way to develop analytic and communication skills that prepare students for almost any kind of work, as well as for graduate studies in any Mathematics related field. Students can also include an internship experience as a valuable part of the Mathematics major, gaining experience in the world of work while developing problem solving skills. In short, the Mathematics major is a flexible major that prepares students for a wide array of career options. Mathematics graduates are people with strong quantitative skills that can think analytically and solve a variety of problems. Such people will always be in high demand!
Regis College students must complete the Core Studies requirements in addition to their major requirements. Core Studies consists of:
- Core Foundation: 6 credits, or two courses taken over the fall and spring of freshmen year
- Distributive Core: 40-46 credits that represent a variety of offerings in disciplines that provide the underpinning of a solid liberal education
- Integrative Core: 12 credits, or four upper division courses taken in the junior and senior year
More information about Regis College Core Studies can be found here.
Listed below are the degree requirements for completion of the B.S. in Mathematics. The modern language recommended for mathematics majors planning to enter graduate school is either French or German.
