Mathematics (BA, BS)

Ohio State’s mathematics degree provides students with the analytical and logical training necessary for many diverse professions. Students find that their skills in quantitative reasoning are in demand in many careers and professions, very few of which have mathematics in the job title.

Because mathematics graduates go on to pursue professions in diverse fields, the formal requirements for a major program are very flexible. Depending on individual interests, math majors frequently take courses in areas such as biological and physical sciences, management, finance, linguistics, social sciences, statistics, and the computer and engineering sciences.

The Department of Mathematics offers a BS and a BA in mathematics in six different tracks (specialties) allowing students to explore more than 100 undergraduate and more than 100 graduate-level mathematics courses, while focusing in on a specialized area in mathematics and science. Students are encouraged to apply their mathematics skills in other departments by double majoring or completing a minor in more than 200 other subjects at Ohio State.
