Mathematics has a history in teaching and learning that goes back over 5000 years, and has formed the basis for our culture, technology, and philosophy for at least that long. Math is like music, it’s a language. Mathematics embodies the ability to see patterns where others may not. If you know what we’re talking about, are good at quantitative and analytical thinking, and are engaged by problems and patterns, then mathematics may be your calling. Thanks to the wide range of options in the math programs at UNH, that calling can take many career paths.
Choose the B.A. to study pure mathematics or teach it.
Our Bachelor of Arts degree gives you a broad overview of mathematics and its applications in business, economics or the social sciences. It’s the right degree for you if you wish to study the pure discipline, or you plan on becoming a math teacher.
Choose the B.S. for more career options.
The Bachelor of Science degree comes with a degree plan that is designed to prepare student for numerous job opportunities including those in academia, or in industry or science.This program is for you if you’re interested in using numerical techniques to solve mathematical problems in a broad range of disciplines, or if you’d like to apply mathematics to fields such as physics, chemistry, operations research, and engineering, or in a career in economics, finance or statistics, in business or government. The BS is your foundation for graduate study in a range of specializations as well as a means of moving into other related fields that strongly rely on the mathematical sciences.
Factor in a top-notch faculty.
The faculty members in our department have extensive research and teaching experience covering a wide range of topics from pure and applied mathematics. They actively incorporate the latest technology and teaching methods and have expertise in the use of specialized mathematical and statistical software packages across various specialty areas in mathematics.
But they are much more than seasoned professional mathematicians who teach. They are approachable, accessible guides and advisers, devoting many hours outside of class to helping their students succeed whether it’s with coursework or college life.
