This program is designed to provide the necessary skills for successful and productive careers in the natural sciences, accounting, astronomy, meteorology, data processing, economics and environmental planning, to name just a few. In addition, students can become prepared for work in the fields of data analysis and the actuarial sciences.
What Sets Us Apart
Prepare for graduate study
The mathematics major provides a solid foundation for graduate study in the mathematical sciences and can be an excellent complementary major on a dual degree path, such as alongside study in biology (for a career in public health research), political science (for pre-law curriculum), or computer science (for a career as a computer analyst, programmer, software developer, or systems engineer).
