Mathematicians think critically, reason logically and solve problems. These are skills that many employers find highly desirable, but it is not all about jobs and money. Mathematics is a natural human activity practiced by many cultures for thousands of years. Our primary aim is to give you a solid foundation in mathematics that will help you appreciate its power, beauty and usefulness.
The required math courses are designed to give you a solid foundation. There is plenty of room in the program for elective math and non-math courses that interest you. That being said, picking up at least one minor in a math-related field is strongly encouraged. If you choose to pursue the B.S., you also will be taking classes in applied sciences.
College is more than a classroom. Enhance your experience by working with professors outside of the classroom and volunteer at high schools to help tutor students.
“The professors are extremely approachable during office hours or by appointment. They bring in resources that help advance our knowledge and make us really think about what we are learning and how we solve each question.” Lauren McEvoy, adolescence education: mathematics major
