Bachelor of Science
Mathematics & Computer Science
Mathematics students learn how to reason their way through unfamiliar territory, find familiar structures, make predictions and answer important questions. In a world saturated with big data, the ability to create meaning out of this information is increasingly relevant and desired in business, finance, engineering, medicine and the sciences. A major or minor in mathematics complements any degree that uses the scientific process.
The Standard major gives a sound foundation from which one can pursue advanced degrees or enter the business world with excellent quantitative skills.
The Actuarial Science emphasis trains students to analyze risk for the insurance and finance industries.
The Secondary Licensure emphasis is for students who want to teach in high schools or middle schools, where a shortage of well-qualified math teachers provides excellent job opportunities.
The Data Analytics minor teaches students how to analyze large data sets and extract valuable knowledge from data.
Job prospects are high for mathematics graduates. While many go on to earn advanced degrees, students can find positions right after graduation in the following areas:
- Actuarial science
- Energy analysis
- Financial planning
- Fraud investigation
- Investment analytics
- Market research
- Software testing
- Systems engineering
