Majors and Minors in Math

The Department of Mathematics offers three majors and two minors. The variety of programs reflects the diverse interests of the Ithaca College students. The math faculty is committed to working with all students to ensure success by providing a supportive environment that stresses critical thinking, intellectual challenge, and continual encouragement.

Mathematics - B.A.

The BA is a comprehensive Mathematics degree that allows students the flexibility to follow their own interests in coursework, research, and independent study.  By completing the core, students will develop knowledge and skills in the major areas of mathematics (discrete and continuous, deterministic and probabilistic).  In their remaining elective courses, students will be able to pursue their interests in pure or applied mathematics.

Mathematics - B.S.

The BS is designed for students interested in continuing studies in math intensive fields after graduation. By completing the core, students will develop knowledge and skills in the major areas of mathematics (discrete and continuous, deterministic and probabilistic). By designing a concentration, students will explore in depth mathematics of their own choosing.

Data Science Minor

The Data Science Minor combines mathematical modeling, computational thinking, and inferential reasoning to draw conclusions from data in the world around us.  Students learn the tools used by data scientists and engage in the interdisciplinary problem-solving needed to make sense of data and effectively communicate findings.
