Mathematics  BSc
Program Overview
In today’s world, mathematics plays an important role in climate research, data science, cryptography, and artificial intelligence. AUC’s mathematics major prepares students for advanced study in mathematics and other fields, as well as enables them to work in related areas in industry and teaching. Students study a variety of topics, including calculus, discrete mathematics, probability, statistics, differential equations, optimization, linear and abstract algebra, real and complex analysis, number theory, formal logic, and graph theory.
Program Objectives
Graduates of the mathematics program will be able to:

Apply their knowledge in the modern industry or teaching, or secure acceptance in highquality graduate programs in mathematics and other fields such as the field of quantitative/mathematical finance, mathematical computing, statistics, and actuarial science

Communicate effectively both orally and in writing

Work effectively in teams

Exhibit ethical and professional behavior
Learning Outcomes

Formulate and analyze mathematical and statistical problems, precisely define the key terms, and draw clear and reasonable conclusions

Use mathematical and statistical techniques to solve welldefined problems and present their mathematical work, both in oral and written format, to various audiences (students, mathematicians, and nonmathematicians)

Read, understand and construct correct mathematical and statistical proofs and use the library and electronic databases to locate information on mathematical problems

Explain the importance of mathematics and its techniques to solve reallife problems and provide the limitations of such techniques and the validity of the results

Propose new mathematical and statistical questions and suggest possible software packages and/or computer programming to find solutions to these questions

Continue to acquire mathematical and statistical knowledge and skills appropriate to professional activities and demonstrate the highest standards of ethical issues in mathematics
Statistics and Data Analysis
As an option within the bachelor's degree in mathematics, students may choose to study statistics and data analysis.
Double Major
Students intending to doublemajor in mathematics together with another program from the School of Sciences and Engineering will be allowed to transfer and doublecount credits earned in approved courses from their program toward requirements for a major in mathematics. This will normally allow them to complete the two programs by adding between nine and 30 credits to the total required by their “other” major, depending on what this other major is and on how many general electives a particular student is required to take.
