Mathematics
Meet Your Major: Mathematics
As a mathematics major, you’ll improve your ability to apply mathematical concepts and techniques to realworld problems.
Featuring a dynamic curriculum, the mathematics program will prepare you to recognize and generalize patterns as well as use technology to investigate, understand and apply mathematics.
What You’ll Learn
In the mathematics program, you will:
 Delve into the heart of mathematics by finding patterns in the world around us, studying them by making conjectures and then improving them.
 Discover the many applications of math, from planning airline flight routes to understanding how molecules fit together to form chemical bonds.
 Dive into complex math by taking courses in calculus, algebra, geometry and differential equations.
 Enhance your problemsolving ability by exploring numerical analysis, modeling, simulation, probability and statistics.
 Improve your criticalthinking and logicalreasoning skills.
HandsOn Learning
You’ll have the opportunity to take part in internships, coops and summer research projects. It’s your chance to get realworld experience at local investment companies, actuarial firms and software companies. Bonus? You can also give back to your community by tutoring elementary school students through the Lawrence Math and Science Partnership.
Career Options
Upon successful completion of the mathematics program, you’ll be wellequipped to pursue advanced studies or a career in education, industry or government. Positions may include:
 Accountant
 Business analyst
 Estate planner
 Software engineer
 Statistician
 Teacher
