Mathematical Sciences (MATH)

mathstudents resizedThe curriculum in Mathematical Science offers a comprehensive program of study, including a foursemester sequence in elementary and intermediate calculus and a two-semester sequence in advanced calculus, differential equations, probability and statistics, modern geometry, linear and abstract algebra. A variety of introductory and special courses, serving the needs of general education and majors in business, teacher education, and the natural and social sciences is also available.

Students may either major or minor or take a concentration for teacher education in Mathematics. One may pursue licensure to teach high school (grades 9-12) by completing the Education Minor as described in the Secondary Education section. Mathematics majors may continue with graduate study in Mathematics, statistics, computer science, operations research, biomathematics and other areas. Study in Mathematics also prepares one for a career in business, industry, or education. The need for mathematically-trained individuals in the various fields of application continues to increase.
