Math and Computer Science Majors

Applied Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics offers a major in Mathematics and a minor in Mathematics. With these programs, you will be prepared for positions in business, industry, research, education, and graduate studies–wherever mathematics related problem-solving skills are needed.

The solid analytical and creative skills developed through the strong mathematics background will lead you, in general, into upper management positions or graduate studies in several areas, including mathematics, engineering, economics, education, accounting, actuarial science, and management. Our graduates occupy a broad variety of positions, such as: actuarial scientists or managers for insurance companies, banks, or industry, and teachers.

A pre-engineering program is offered through the Math Department.
