Mathematics is the universal language of business, government
planning, engineering and the applied sciences.
In today's high-tech workplace, people with strong math skills
are more in demand than ever — and there are excellent
opportunities for graduates with a degree in mathematics. Their
knowledge and skills are vital in fields such as cryptography,
computer security, computer modeling, statistical modeling and
biotechnology. Mathematical skills also are valued in finance and
other business-related fields, astronomy and space exploration,
medicine, robotics and film animation.
You can prepare for these opportunities by earning your
bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at St. John's University. Offered
by St. John’s
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the University’s oldest
division, the program comprises two 126-credit courses of study:
the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Bachelor of Science in
Mathematics. The B.A. and B.S. degree programs are available at the
Queens and Staten Island
Students gain a solid foundation in the knowledge and skills
that underlie mathematics. Courses cover topics such as the
mathematical basis for computers, computer languages and advanced
concepts in mathematics. Developing expertise in these and other
related areas, students build the habits of thought needed for
mastering concepts in mathematics — concepts applicable to many
fields as well as advanced academic study.
