The Department of Mathematics believes an undergraduate major should be both an introduction to more advanced study and a survey of the many facets of mathematics. The Department offers three mathematics majors and two minors. The primary focus of the B.S. Mathematics Teaching program is to prepare students to teach mathematics at the middle and secondary levels.

Your Future Opportunities

Majoring in mathematics or statistics teaches you to be a good problem solver, and that is the key to success in any career - finding efficient ways to solve problems inherent in your job. The problems do not have to be quantitative since critical thinking and mathematics go hand-in-hand.
