Mathematics has traditionally been the language of science and now plays a vital role in the social sciences and business as well. Every field in which quantitative activity is found requires that its workers have a strong background in mathematics. A student well-versed in mathematics will find their skills of use in almost any profession.
Although mathematics is studied for its applications, it also attracts many who are interested in its aesthetic and creative side. A study of mathematics improves one's ability to think about abstract concepts, to conceptualize about hypothetical structures, to reach logical conclusions, and to consider many solution techniques when problem solving.
Majors/Emphases
Students may elect one of four emphases in the mathematics major. The Mathematics, Actuarial Science, and Statistics emphases consist of the Math Core courses and an additional 18 to 20 units of required or elective courses in the emphasis. Also, students in these three emphases must complete a writing requirement (ENGLISH 370 or PWP 371 or PWP 372), a computer science requirement, and the Math Exit Interview milestone requirement. The Mathematics Education (BSE) emphasis consists of the Math Core courses and an additional 28 units of required mathematics courses and 44 units of teaching licensure coursework through the College of Education and Professional Studies. Students in the Mathematics Education emphasis must also complete the Math Exit Interview milestone requirement.
An approved minor is required for the Mathematics, Actuarial Science, and Statistics emphases.
