Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

"I love being a math major as I get to further explore the topics that interest me the most and am setting myself up for a plethora of career choices," says Nathan Waskiewicz. "I also think every single professor in the math department is awesome."

A mind for numbers

Math is everywhere, from the spiral of a shell to the timing of a symphony, and it is integral to everything around us. As a mathematics major at the University of New Haven, you’ll apply math’s universal language to your area of interest, while sharpening your ability to reason and problem solve.

Through the B.S. program, you will:

Prepare for a wide variety of careers, such as being a computer consultant, statistical analyst, scientific research analyst, product manager, educator, or business manager.

The Absolute Value of the 2022 Mathematics Research Community

The American Mathematics Society (AMS) has accepted a proposal by faculty members — including the University of New Haven’s Daniel Cicala — for a Mathematics Research Community on Applied Category Theory to be held in the summer of 2022. The faculty will lead 40 early-career mathematicians through an intensive week of research on that topic. The AMS Mathematics Research Communities is a professional development program for mathematicians who are just starting out. The program helps them develop collaborative research skills and build a network centered around an active research domain. Mentoring from leaders in the specific topic area and valuable career guidance are also part of the equation.

Learn from professors who are dedicated to your success.

Our faculty are leaders and innovators in their fields, bringing both deep professional experience and academic rigor to the classroom.
