Mathematics Major

1

Mathematics Majors are first required to prove a firm understanding of the basic concepts, methods and formulas in mathematics. Beyond the basics, students will develop proficiency in the use of the symbolic language of mathematics, as well as the use of computers for modern day applications. The application of age-old formulas with blazing technology makes the challenge of problem-solving fun, and will prepare our students for tomorrow’s workplace.

Some will go on to teach mathematics at the secondary level, and others will address tomorrow’s challenges using computer science and technology. Either way, the graduates of this program are finding rewarding, challenging careers.
