Mathematics Major and Minor
Our mathematics program is designed to prepare students for careers in both teaching and industry. Students who complete mathematics major or minor programs have historically been viewed by employers as being well prepared for jobs that require problem solving and creative thinking skills.
- Bachelor of Science in Mathematics: This degree provides students with broad exposure to disciplines in mathematics. Many of our students in this major enroll in either graduate programs in the mathematical sciences or professional schools (like law and medicine). Our two minors are popular among students majoring in both science and non-science disciplines.
- Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Education: This degree prepares students for a career in secondary education (grades 9-12) as mathematics educators.
Minors in Mathematics
- Minor in Mathematics: The mathematics minor provides students with a foundation in both abstract reasoning and computation fluency. Students completing a math minor have strong problem solving and critical thinking skills. A minor in mathematics is excellent preparation for students wishing to pursue law school, computer science, elementary education, economics, and many other careers that depend on an ability to think and communicate logically and clearly.
- Minor in Applied Mathematics: The applied mathematics minor is an excellent complement to such majors as economics, business, computer science, chemistry, physics, biology and sports medicine. It is designed to give students a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts and a more robust set of quantitative reasoning skills, which are increasingly important in the fields of business and the physical sciences.
