Mathematics Major/Minor

A Formula for Life

Math is all around us. It defines shape, quantity, arrangement, and movement for everything we see—technology, architecture, art, money, engineering, sports—and many things we don’t see—theories, code, and energy.

With a degree in Mathematics, you will learn to take in the world around you and translate what you see into practical problem-solving skills. Explore Mathematics as an analytical or artistic form, challenging yourself to pursue wisdom and logic and make calculated, wise decisions across a variety of situations.

The Matrix of Mathematics

Our Mathematics curriculum will develop your understanding of theoretical and applied mathematics, including calculus, statistics, and other mathematical applications. You will become a competent and creative problem-solver, theorist, and critical analyst. Combine your technical skills with the fields of chemistry, physics, technology, and business through applied advanced mathematics courses.

Which Bachelor’s Degree Should I Choose?

Mathematics majors have the option to choose between a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Science with Systems degree. The degree you choose depends on your career interests.

Our Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics degree option would prepare you to enter graduate school and take the next step toward becoming a professional mathematician. Most of our Math B.A. graduates pursue graduate study in mathematics, computer science, or physics; some B.A. students even use their mathematics background to pursue law school, medical school, and seminary.

Our Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Systems pairs the problem-solving skills developed by a mathematics degree with the Taylor’s innovative Systems program. Similar to Operations Research, this flexible degree can lead you toward a career in actuarial science, statistics, or any business field using data and technology. Students gain preparation for current job markets through a practicum and coursework focused on modern applications.

Minor in Mathematics

By choosing a mathematics minor, you can strengthen your analytic and problem-solving skills and develop your understanding of complex mathematical concepts. Personalize your degree through a variety of foundational math courses and electives. A Mathematics minor pairs well with majors in Finance, Accounting, Computer Science, or Engineering.
