Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (BSMath) is a four-year degree program designed to give students a background in mathematical modeling, scientific computing, and various modern applications of mathematics. The program covers major areas in pure mathematics exposure to mathematical applications in statistics, operation research, and actuarial science. It also teaches students the proper use of problem-solving approaches to investigate and understand mathematical content and analyze mathematical statements and construct solutions.

Recommended Senior High School Strand

Students who want to pursue a degree in Mathematics are encouraged to take the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand under the Academic Track. The strand provides the basics of applied mathematics and sciences that will be useful in their college life.

Subjects and Curriculum

  • Advanced Calculus
  • Differential Equations
  • Fundamentals of Computing
  • Linear Algebra
  • Precalculus Mathematics
  • Probability
  • Statistics
  • Abstract Algebra
  • Complex Analysis
  • Fundamental Concepts of Mathematics
  • Modern Geometry

Admission Requirements


  • The student must be a high school graduate. 

However, if they were not able to graduate high school, they may opt to take the Alternative Learning System (ALS) and pass the Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) to qualify for college; the availability of courses for PEPT passers depend on the university.

Program Outcome

Graduates of BS in Mathematics are expected to be able to:

  • Use the scientific method for critical and problem solving
  • Practice basic mathematical and statistical computations while using proper technologies in analyzing data
  • Communicate mathematical ideas in a precise language  both in oral and writing
  • Demonstrate skills in pattern recognition, critical analysis, and problem-solving
  • Understand the importance of mathematics and its relevance to other disciplines

On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the fourth year of the program, students are required to attend an On the Job Training (OJT) in educational or financial institutions, business companies, or government agencies.

Students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in an actual work setting.

Their work performance will also be evaluated by their immediate managers and will be submitted to their respective OJT coordinator. The number of hours required may differ in each university.

Board Exam

The BS in Mathematics does not have a board examination. However, graduates may opt to take the Civil Service Examination (CSE) conducted by the Philippine Civil Service Commission (PCSC) to qualify in working in government offices. Some graduates opt to take a Master’s degree followed by a Doctorate degree to gain expertise in the industry.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of BS in Mathematics may pursue a career path in educational or financial institutions, business companies, or government agencies. They may apply as a math teacher, college professor, financial analyst, system developer, algorithm developer, marketing analyst, mathematician, or a cryptographer.
