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.

Mathematics majors provides the necessary background to be prepared to pursue an advanced degree (M.A. or the PhD) in mathematics at major graduate schools such as Vanderbilt, the University of Tennessee, Georgia Tech, etc. Also this major prepares the student to enter the workplace in jobs which require a working knowledge of mathematics such as mathematician, statistician, actuary, etc.

Career Paths

Mathematicians and Statisticians

Mathematicians and statisticians analyze data and apply mathematical and statistical techniques to help solve real-world problems in business, engineering, healthcare, or other fields.


Actuaries analyze the financial costs of risk and uncertainty. They use mathematics, statistics, and financial theory to assess the risk of potential events, and they help businesses and clients develop policies that minimize the cost of that risk. Actuaries’ work is essential to the insurance industry.

High School Teachers

High school teachers help prepare students for life after graduation. They teach academic lessons and various skills that students will need to attend college and to enter the job market.
