Mathematics major/minor

Mathematics majors take classes in all math subject areas instead of specializing. This approach means our graduates are well-rounded and well-prepared for a variety of career choices or for an advanced degree. If you are interested in teaching mathematics, you will also need teaching licensure. The program prepares you for a wide variety of vocations and professional positions that value analytical reasoning skills, mathematical knowledge and problem-solving skills.

We are committed to using the most up-to-date technology in our classes. First-year and sophomore courses are designed to use graphing calculators. Many courses include computer projects which allow you to explore mathematics on the Web and use software such as Excel, Mathematica and Maple.
