Earn your BS through a strong and flexible program in both applied and theoretical mathematics.

BS majors will choose to concentrate on traditional pure mathematics, applied mathematics, or in training for a career in actuarial mathematics. You will gain a solid grounding in mathematics and use computational tools where appropriate.

Students are encouraged to select an optional concentration in Actuarial Mathematics (ACTM), Applied Mathematics (AMT), or Mathematical Statistics (MTHS). Students who do not select a concentration study traditional mathematics.

Research Opportunities

There have been several research opportunities for undergraduate mathematics majors in recent years, through the GMU Undergraduate Apprenticeship Program, NSF-supported Research Experiences for Undergraduates programs, and NSF-supported CSUMS and EXTREEMS programs for research in computational and data-enabled mathematics. Additionally, students can intern at the Mason Experimental Geometry Lab working on experimental pure mathematics and visualization projects. Qualified students also have the option of writing an honors thesis on a variety of topics in pure and applied mathematics under the supervision of a mathematics faculty.


  • Traditional concentration: Classical training in analytic reasoning and mathematics with exposure to the natural sciences.
  • Concentration in Actuarial Mathematics: Students will receive training to become an actuary, with exposure to the natural sciences. Expertise in this field leads directly to a career as a practicing actuary with an insurance company, consulting firm, or in government employment.
  • Concentration in Applied Mathematics: Training in analytic reasoning along with computational skills, with exposure to the natural sciences. The concentration prepares numerical analysts able to deal with real-world applications in science and engineering.
  • Concentration in Mathematical Statistics: Students will receive additional knowledge of probability and mathematical statistics. The concentration prepares data analysts able to deal with real-world applications in science and engineering.
