Career Opportunities

The mathematics major prepares students for careers in teaching, government service, industry, and research, or graduate study in mathematics. The student has two options: mathematics major and the mathematics education major. The student has three options: BS in Mathematics, pure track, BS in Mathematics, applied track, and the Mathematics Education major.

Program Outcomes

Upon completing a major in Mathematics, students will:

  1. Demonstrate proficiency in Algebra and Trigonometry, as well as Integral, Differential and Multivariable Calculus necessary for success in advanced mathematical studies.
  2. Demonstrate content knowledge of both abstract and applied mathematical disciplines by stating definitions, salient theorems, and proofs of major theorems and concepts that are core content in upper division courses.
  3. Organize and explain their knowledge of logic and mathematical content in the structure of original valid proofs.
  4. Communicate mathematical ideas effectively in both written and oral context.
  5. Apply major definitions, theorems and algorithms in problem solving.
  6. Use appropriate technological tools while solving mathematical problems.
  7. Prepare professionally for graduate school or employment in mathematics or related fields.
