The Department of Mathematics offers a well balanced curriculum that can prepare students for immediate entry into the workforce or for further study at the graduate level. The curriculum provides students with a solid foundation in mathematics while offering flexibility in course selection. Students can prepare for many different careers in business, industry, education, and government. Among the alumni of the department are teachers, professors, lawyers, financial professionals, insurance industry executives, software engineers, as well as researchers and administrators in the defense industry.

Four optional concentrations of courses are available: Actuarial Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, and Statistics. However, a student is not obligated to follow any of these four concentrations. Faculty members who serve as academic advisors can help students develop a course of study appropriate for their individual career goals.  Students interested in pursuing a Master’s degree in mathematics can shorten the time required to earn it by enrolling in the BS/MS Fast Track program and beginning graduate mathematics coursework during their senior year.

Students planning to major in mathematics should complete 4 years of mathematics in high school, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus mathematics.
