Program description


Mathematics is about number operations and algebra, motion and change (calculus and differential equations), logical analysis, scientific visualization, structure and geometry, the prediction of random events (probability), the extraction of useful information from large sets of data (statistics), the discovery of the best ways to do things (optimization). It is abstract and theoretical, and intensely down-to-earth and practical, all at the same time.

The mathematics major and minor prepare students for exciting and rewarding work in industry, for careers in teaching, and for advanced post-baccalaureate study. Our calculus, differential equations, analysis, and probability and statistics courses enable science students to analyze data and predict outcomes in static and dynamic situations. Our foundations, discrete math, and algebra courses give students the tools they need for rigorous logical and structural analysis and a deep conceptual understanding of quantitative situations. Our mathematics education courses prepare students to be outstanding teacher leaders with a deep knowledge of mathematics and the best practices in teaching. Our general education courses give the general student the mathematical background she or he needs to function in life as an educated and informed citizen in an increasingly quantitative and data-driven world.

The Mathematics Department makes every effort to offer its courses at times that are convenient for students. Courses in the mathematics option of the major are generally offered in the morning. Courses in the mathematics education option of the major are generally offered at night to accommodate the needs of working students.

Career opportunities

A degree in mathematics is a key that opens the door to a world of opportunity. Students who major in mathematics are able to pursue a diverse range of careers. They are sought out by profit and non-profit institutions for their ability to use reasoning and logic and for their ability to solve problems. Many are interested in passing their learning on to future generations through teaching. Others seek advanced degrees in mathematics or other sciences and pursue cutting-edge research. Some will pursue degrees in business or economics, where the ability to work with numbers can be a great advantage. Those with mathematical training have gone on to careers as business executives at major software companies, as analysts for stock trading companies, as actuaries and risk management experts for insurance companies and the healthcare industry, as scientists and data analysts in engineering and biotech firms, as software designers and Programrs, and a whole host of other careers.
