Mathematics opens doors to opportunity

According to studies, not only do mathematics majors score the highest of students in any field on the LSAT and GMAT (tests required for law and business school entrance), but they also make higher salaries and report higher levels of job satisfaction than almost any industry.

You’ll develop highly marketable skills sought after by nearly every sector of the job market, from engineering to science and technology, telecommunications to pharmaceuticals, and government work to teaching in the classroom.

If you have a head for numbers and want to continue developing your analytical skills and problem-solving abilities, you’ll have the opportunity for one-on-one research with professors in coding theory, encryption, and graph theory. You'll collaborate with students in other departments, such as music. You could tutor other students, experiencing how to communicate mathematics to others who need your help.

If you'd like to teach math, you will major in mathematics and also take education courses to earn secondary teaching licensure for grades 7–12.

Mathematics minor

Students who are majoring in another program may choose to take a Mathematics minor in addition to their primary course of study. A minor normally consists of a minimum of 15 semester hours, 6 of which must be taken at the 300/400 level. Each academic school or department must approve the student and curriculum to be used in the completion of each minor for the Office of the Registrar to verify at the point of graduation.
