B.A. (Mathematics) Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics
B.A. Mathematics or Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics is an undergraduate Mathematical degree course. Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics studies measurement, properties, and relationships of quantities and sets, using numbers and symbols. There are two degrees which are offered in mathematics: the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science. Both programs have a common core of mathematics courses; both programs prepare students for graduate work in mathematics. In addition, the Bachelor of Arts degree is oriented toward applications of mathematics in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. The Bachelor of Science degree has a number of options. These options are oriented toward actuarial science, applied analysis, computational mathematics, graduate study, systems analysis, and teaching. The duration of the course is three years.
B.A. Mathematics Eligibility
The basic eligibility criterion for pursuing B.A. (Mathematics) degree is qualifying 10+2 or equivalent examination in any stream from a recognised board of the country.
The students applying for this degree course must have passed 10+2 in science and commerce streams, with Mathematics as one of the subjects studied at the intermediate level.
B.A. Mathematics Syllabus
The below mentioned syllabus (common for both B.A. and B.Sc.) is given by the Assam University, Silchar.
Candidates who are good at Mathematical skills and formulae are most suitable for this course.
Applicants who willing to become Lecturer and Professor at college or university level undoubtedly can go for it.
They should be able to approach problems in an analytical and rigorous way, formulate theories and applying them to solve problems.
Students should also possess skills like presenting mathematical arguments and conclusions with accuracy and clarity; advanced numeracy and analysing large quantities of data and logical thinking.
How is B.A. Mathematics Course Beneficial?
This degree course enable the highly qualified and career oriented students to obtain training in statistics focused on developing data analysis skills, and exploration of core areas of applied statistics at the graduate levels in addition to an undergraduate degree in Mathematics.
The degree course creates interests among students for mathematics, computation, and the quantitative aspects of science for careers in industry and government as statistical analysts.
Besides being eligible for further higher studies and research in the field of Mathematics and they can also take up the job of teacher / lecturer in several universities and colleges after attaining higher qualifications.
