    Program Learning Outcomes

    Upon completing a major in mathematics, students will:

    • Demonstrate proficiency in algebra and trigonometry, as well as integral, differential, and multivariable calculus necessary for success in advanced mathematical studies.
    • 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.
    • Organize and explain their knowledge of logic and mathematical content in the structure of original valid proofs.
    • Communicate mathematical ideas effectively in both written and oral context.
    • Apply major definitions, theorems and algorithms in problem solving.
    • Use appropriate technological tools while solving mathematical problems.
    • Prepare professionally for graduate school or employment in mathematics or related fields.
