B.S. in Mathematics and Physics

Student Studying Mathematics and PhysicsAn innovative program that draws on two LIU Post academic departments, the Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Physics provides a sound preparation for graduate work in engineering, physics or applied mathematics. It also provides excellent preparation for a career in actuarial science and for rewarding positions in many other fields, and has proven valuable for gaining admission to medical or dental schools. Academically rigorous courses taught in small-class settings by professors with degrees from premier universities make the B.S. in Mathematics and Physics a program of extraordinary quality and value. The program requires 129 credits.

Students in the B.S. in Mathematics and Physics may qualify to participate in the Pre-Engineering Program. This program enables students to earn two bachelor’s degrees in just five years: the B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from LIU Post and a bachelor’s degree in engineering from a university with which LIU Post has an articulation agreement, such as Polytechnic University, Stevens Institute of Technology, and Arizona State University.

Program Goals


  • To provide students with comprehensive knowledge of the related disciplines of mathematics and physics
