The mathematics department offers a B.S. in Mathematics , and B.A. in Mathematics , a B.S. in Mathematical Sciences  with tracks in Actuarial Science, Biological Sciences, Computer & Information Science, Data Science, and Physical Sciences, a BS in Applied Mathematics , and a B.S. in Biomathematics . These programs share a number of courses in the first and second year adding flexibility to deciding which path to pursue. Additionally, the department offers minors in Actuarial Science  and Mathematics .

The Mathematics B.S. and B.A. programs provide students with both breadth and depth in the discipline of mathematics. Mathematics students have great flexibility: many continue with advanced study in mathematics while others pursue a career in education, or any one of a variety of other fields.       

Fully taking advantage of the many excellent programs in the STEM and business fields at The University of Scranton, the Mathematical Sciences, BS . program provides students with the opportunity to attain a mathematics degree that focuses on the interconnectedness of mathematics and a partner discipline.

The Applied Mathematics, BS . trains students in those areas of mathematics that are foundational in solving problems in business and industry. Students of applied mathematics often pursue a career or advanced study in fields from science, engineering, economics, or finance.   

The Biomathematics, BS  emphasizes the mathematical and scientific concepts necessary for quantitative approaches to the study of biology and medicine. With two distinct tracks, a pre-health track and a research track, Biomathematics graduates are well-prepared to pursue a variety of career opportunities in medicine, the health sciences, or basic scientific research.
