With a degree in Mathematics from Taylor University, 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.
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.
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.
"I was well prepared for student teaching because Taylor classes gave me opportunities to be in the classroom and teaching in front of students well before I started student teaching. This gave me confidence in my ability to teach, and I have only grown even more from my student teaching experience so far. It has taught me that teaching is hard, but so worth it."
"My time as a math major at Taylor was not only a chance to build relationships with some of the most fantastic and Christ-like faculty I’ve ever met; it was also a time where I learned to excel mathematically. I was able to pass two graduate school qualifying exams while still an undergraduate at Taylor, and two more right upon starting graduate school."

A Taylor liberal arts education will prepare you to live and work in a fast-changing world. It also goes a step further: laying a strong spiritual foundation that cultivates wisdom. You’ll become a well-versed individual, equipped with critical thinking skills, a lifelong love of learning, and an appreciation for God’s creation.
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, pursuing graduate study in mathematics, computer science, or physics. Some mathematic majors even use their degrees 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.
