Program Overview

Program Overview

Sure, two plus two is four. But if you’re here, you’re probably interested in exploring what’s beyond math’s basics. And your options are endless: statistics, calculus, geometry, abstract algebra, topology, differential equations and many more! Dig deeper into the incredible body of knowledge that constitutes mathematics by earning your degree in the field. 

Learn from highly qualified professors who care about your personal development just as much as your academic success. Work alongside peers who will challenge and support your intellect and welcome your enthusiasm. A faith-based perspective applied to the discipline will help you see the field in a new light.

Plus, the problem-solving skills you finesse will apply far beyond just equations. A mathematics major will fully equip you for employment in the industry or for enrolling in a graduate program in mathematics.
