# Mathematics Department Programs of Study

Students select a mathematics major because they enjoy studying logical systems and solving interesting problems. Recent graduates from the Walla Walla University mathematics program have gone into a wide variety of graduate programs and occupations including teaching, medicine, law, engineering, and more.

Those wishing to major in mathematics must choose one of the two degrees listed below.

**Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics**

Students who select a B.A. degree in mathematics are looking for a more general degree that includes a foreign language and a minor. To make time for this, fewer mathematics and science courses are required.

See our Bachelor of Arts Academic Advisement Guide.**Bachelor of Science in Mathematics**

Students who select a B.S. degree in mathematics wish to focus more on mathematics and science and must choose one of four specialization options:

- Preparation for Graduate Study
- Preparation for Secondary Teaching
- Applied Mathematics
- Actuarial Studies

See our Bachelor of Science Academic Advisement Guide.
