The Department of Mathematics seeks curious students who want explore mathematics! Students are required to have a minimum of a 2.5 on a 4.0 scale to be admitted to the Mathematics Program. Students are required to earn a C or higher in all math courses.
With a strong mathematical background, students will not only become conscientious citizens, but will be better prepared for their career choice. The skills that students obtain while pursuing a mathematics degree include critical thinking skills, analytical skills, and problem solving skills. Due to these skills acquired, students are able to cross over into a wide variety of career paths. Students who earn an undergraduate degree in mathematics can choose to start their career immediately or pursue graduate studies or attend professional schools. Some career choices may require stronger backgrounds in other disciplines (minor in another subject or pursue a double major), certifications, or advanced degrees. Students are encouraged to apply for internship opportunities to explore career options. Possible career choices for mathematics majors include: • Engineer • Educator (Primary, Secondary, University levels) • Administrator (School board, Principal, etc.) • Tutorial Firms • Financial Advisor and Analyst • Programmer • Researcher • Actuary • Federal Agencies (IRS, Department of Education) • Accountant • Stock Broker • System Analyst • Bank Employee • Statistical Analyst • Cryptographist • Robotics • Animation • Medicine related fields • Meteorologist • Lawyer
