BS Mathematics (Florham)
Math majors develop many skills including the ability to formulate and solve problems, logical and critical thinking, numerical computation, and quantitative skills. These skills are crucial in many fields. Career opportunities include working as a Mathematician, Computer Scientist, Statistician, Economist, Actuary, Cryptologist, Biostatistician, and College Professor.
NOTE: All students are required to complete the General Education Requirements of their campus in fulfillment of their Bachelor degree requirements.
6 credits from the MAJOR may be applied toward General Education Requirements.
