Program Description

The department prepares students for a large variety of career opportunities. This goal is supplemented by a curriculum that ensures that each student graduates with both theoretical and applied knowledge in their field. This is accomplished, in part, by the use of technology, which is integrated throughout the curriculum. Graphing calculators and computer software are employed to help introduce concepts and as an aid in understanding the subject matter. The use of these tools also enables students to learn independently which is an important asset in any future career.

Mathematics majors are encouraged to complete a minor in another discipline or have a supportive area approved by the department.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Communicate mathematics to others.
  2. Apply mathematics to any area of study by modeling and solving problems using mathematical tools and technology and will be able to interpret the results.
  3. Evaluate the accuracy and appropriate use of mathematical statements in the media and in statistical reports.

Minimum required credits for the program: 40
