The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (BS Math) is a new degree program offered by the Visayas State University through the Department of Mathematics and Physics. It is a 4-year degree program designed to give students a background in mathematical modeling, scientific computing, and the various modern applications of mathematics. Also, this program teaches students the proper use of problem-solving approaches to investigate and understand mathematical content and analyze mathematical statements and construct proofs and solutions. Many current advances in science and technology rest on mathematical foundations. Mathematics has been studied systematically for more than 2500 years and continues to be an active research area.

The BS Math graduates shall be equipped with enhanced mathematical and critical thinking skills. Graduates are expected to have developed a deeper appreciation and understanding of the importance of mathematics in history and the modern world.
