Solve problems with competency, care and creativity.
A degree in mathematics, mathematics education, or mathematics and systems from Taylor will prepare you to be a competent, caring and creative problem solver—working in education, government, business or ministry in areas like web design, consulting, computer analysis, engineering, graphic design, statistics, and even as an actuary. You will also be well prepared for graduate school at places like MIT, the Mayo Clinic, Rutgers University, and Indiana University.
Our faculty engages you in a dynamic community that expands beyond academics to enrich your spiritual and social development. You will have the opportunity to participate in State Math competitions, a math club, summer research and internships, Honors Guild and take trips with other students during J-term and Spring Break.
