Why study math at UMass Lowell?

Mathematics provides tools for explanation and analysis in the physical, engineering, business and social sciences. These tools can help in areas as diverse as planning and evaluating market research, modeling problems in business and finance, developing new educational practices, comparing treatment groups in the biological and social sciences, providing fundamental organizing structure for the physical world and giving satisfaction to those who love mathematics for its own sake.

At UMass Lowell, you can:

  • Earn your bachelor's degree through both the day and evening programs.
  • Focus your B.S. in Mathematics degree by choosing the General Option or STEM Teaching Option.
  • Customize your master's degree with one of four options: General, Applied and Computational Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, and Mathematics for Teachers.
