Bachelor of Mathematical Science
The mathematical science degree curriculum is designed primarily for dual majors in biology, chemistry, physics or an engineering discipline. During the first two years of study, students in this program take the same courses as those students getting an applied mathematics degree, followed by upper-division mathematics courses (such as numerical analysis and modeling) in the final two years. Students also take electives in social science, computer science and engineering.
Whether you want to study the intricacies of discrete mathematics, design neural networks or develop a better web search algorithm, Florida Tech's mathematical science degree gives you a strong background in calculus and experience in science and engineering.
Gain Practical Experience Through Research
Knowledge of mathematics is essential to the fields of natural science, engineering, medicine and the social sciences, making a mathematical science degree a smart and practical second major. Research is mandatory for all undergraduates who choose a mathematical science degree.
Mathematical science students mostly work on interdisciplinary research projects at the intersection of their two majors, under supervision of two advisors, one from each major. The curriculum includes technical electives and specialized labs as well as an opportunity for independent or collaborative (with a peer or professor) research in a topic of your choosing. This results in practical experience, an enhanced job search portfolio and the perfect preparation for employment or graduate school.
Build Professional Relationships
Beyond the classroom, mathematical science majors build leadership and professional experience through internships and participation in academic organizations like the American Mathematical Society, Society of Actuaries, Society for Industrial and Mathematical Science, Student Astronomical Society, Student Government and over 100 other student organizations.
Get Recruited Upon Graduation
Employers that have recruited Florida Tech students for internships and careers include Harris Corporation, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, DRS Optronics, Kennedy Space Center, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the Space Telescopic Science Institute.
Earn an Advanced Degree
After receiving their mathematical science degree, about 90 percent of our graduates go on to master's and doctoral programs at Florida Tech and other prestigious universities, including California Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Harvard, Northwestern, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan and more.
Choose Florida Tech for a mathematical science degree that will lead to a wide range of career opportunities.
