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.
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.
The Mathematics program is part of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics programs prepares students for advanced study in mathematics or to work in business, industry, or government.
The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics program prepares students for advanced study in mathematics or to work in business, industry, or government.
The Actuarial Science Minor combines finance, statistics, and mathematics to analyze risk and ensure financial security for individuals, corporations and society at large.
