We will provide you with the tools to increase your abilities in math and prepare you for a satisfying career.

One Major, Many Goals
We understand that choosing math as a major can be difficult because you don’t know what you can do with it. We try to help you answer that question. Not only do we provide you with information about what careers former students have entered, but we also offer several tracks within the major to accommodate different needs.

  • We provide an education track for those students who would like to teach high school or middle school math.
  • We provide a pre-engineering track for those students who want to transfer into an engineering school during their junior year.
  • We provide a mathematics/computer science track for those students who are interested in pursuing a career that involves both mathematics and computers.
  • We provide a general mathematics track for students interested in pursuing mathematics as a career or a graduate degree.
