About

This is an Mathematical Sciences degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara intended for students interested in computational aspects of mathematics, systems analysis, decision sciences, physical sciences, and operations research. It is suitable as preparation for advanced training in applied mathematics, management science, business administration, or operations research.

Overview

At the University of California, Santa Barbara we offer a bachelor degree in Mathematical Sciences. Mathematics has been called the queen and the servant of the sciences. As an independent discipline, it was first developed by the ancient Greeks, to whom we owe the notion of the “mathematical proof.” In the late seventeenth century, Newton developed calculus to serve as a tool in his treatment of mechanics, allowing him to correctly predict the motion of the planets. 

This astonishing success definitively demonstrated that mathematics is the ideal language for constructing exact quantitative theories. Today mathematics plays an absolutely fundamental role in physics, economics, and engineering, and plays an ever greater role in fields such as astronomy, chemistry, geology, finance, meteorology, cryptology, ecology, computer science, the social sciences, and a host of other areas. Yet mathematics is also vibrant as a study in its own right, alive with beautiful problems and ongoing developments. These may not be initially motivated by applications, but history indicates that many of the purely mathematical developments of today will become essential to the sciences of the future.

Programme Structure

  • The Department of Mathematics offers five undergraduate programs; B.S. and B.A. degrees in mathematics, a B.S. degree in mathematical sciences; and in conjunction with the Program in Applied Statistics and Probability, a B.S. in financial mathematics and statistics.
  • The Department of Mathematics offers two distinct minor programs. These programs allow non-majors to supplement their majors with cohesive course of study that reflects their interests. To ensure appropriate advising and planning, students who are considering a minor in mathematics should consult the department as soon as possible.
