Get specific preparation for your career

Your studies will culminate in a capstone. During this Mathematics program at California Lutheran University, you’ll work with a faculty mentor to design and carry out a project tailored to your post-graduation goals — an invaluable experience that will prepare you for a successful career.

Choose between a B.S. or B.A. degree

A Bachelor of Science degree will prepare you for graduate studies in the sciences, as well as more technical fields. You’ll be required to take a computer programming course and enroll in advanced math classes.

A Bachelor of Arts degree will give you more freedom in your course selection so that you can complement your work in mathematics with non-science classes. If you plan to pursue a teaching credential, a graduate business program, or law school, then this is the better degree for you.

Your Future

Your mathematical knowledge will be applicable to a wide variety of careers and situations. You’ll also be well prepared to pursue graduate studies.

With a B.S. degree, you’ll be able to enter graduate programs in mathematics, engineering, physics, and computer science.

With a B.A. degree, you’ll be ready to pursue further study in actuarial science, business, education, finance, and the natural sciences.
