It is a great idea to major or minor in mathematics. People with quantitative skills find better jobs and live longer. Our department currently offers a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Mathematics, a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Mathematics, a Minor in Mathematics, and a Minor in Statistics. The links to the left contain information about our classes and major and minor programs.
Every incoming student wishing to take MAT 111, 115, 116, 122, or 126 must take the placement examination. For more information, please watch our video:
Students looking for math or statistics help are encouraged to visit the MATH LAB in 120 Neville Hall.
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
Some math majors take advantage of the many opportunities for research, both in the department and externally. The following pages list undergraduate summer research programs across the country.
Career choices for Math Majors
Majoring in mathematics opens up many possibilities for careers requiring quantitative expertise. Such jobs are routinely reported as being the most satisfying and desirable in the US. The American Mathematical Society has a page with many items of interest to math majors, including career options.
The Mathematical Association of America also maintains a page with information about Mathematics careers.
