The General Mathematics concentration provides preparation for the student who plans to enter a graduate program in mathematics. A student taking this concentration, in consultation with his or her advisor, should choose elective courses which meet the entrance requirements of the desired graduate program.
Teacher Certification in Mathematics
The Teacher Certification concentration, in conjunction with professional education courses, prepares students for teaching mathematics at the secondary level. Majors take courses in both education, mathematics, and mathematics education. Curriculum emphasizes pedagogy, technology, diversity, and current trends in education.
The Data Science concentration is for students interested in applying mathematics, statistics, and computer science to a wide range of business problems. With a broader focus, students in this concentration will be prepared to work in a variety of industries.
The Applied Mathematics/Pre-Actuary concentration prepares students for entry into the job market as an applied mathematician or actuarial trainee, for a career in finance, or for entry into a graduate program in applied mathematics, actuarial science, statistics, finance, or quantitative management science.
The Computer Science degree program prepares students for a career in the world of technology. Both online and in-seat options for majors of this program. The curriculum is designed using guidelines published by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM). Courses provide students excellent training in the scientific and technical areas of computing and the preparation necessary to pursue graduate work in this field. The course of study is mathematical in nature with an emphasis on software engineering.
