Home » Mathematics, B.A.

Pure mathematics studies the basic concepts and structures that underlie all of mathematics. Traditionally, pure mathematics has been classified into two general fields: analysis and algebra. Analysis deals with the continuous aspects of mathematics and algebra is concerned with sets of objects and operations on these objects. Our undergraduate program is designed so that students will become familiar with each of these fields. Students may also explore other topics such as logic, number theory, and subjects within applied mathematics.

High school mathematics through Regents Course III is recommended.
