According to the University of Arkansas, "The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to high-level mathematics instruction, preparing students for careers in secondary education, actuarial science and industry, and for entrance into graduate studies in mathematics and statistics. The department offers two majors, one leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree and a second leading to a Bachelor Science degree.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is often sought by future secondary education majors or by students wishing a broader exposure to the humanities. The Bachelor of Science degree is sought by students who intend to go on to graduate studies or who would like a deeper and broader understanding of higher mathematics. The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to the values of a broad, interdisciplinary education, highlighting the utility and value of the mathematics degree in a wide variety of careers and disciplines. Consequently, both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in Mathematics require the completion of a minor or an additional major, the completion of the UAteach program, or the completion of the Fulbright Four-Year Honors Core."
