Are you a problem-solver? Enjoy a challenge? Majoring in math will give you an abundance of challenges and provide a great foundation for a rewarding career.
What can you do with a degree in math?
Lewis University's
Mathematics program prepares graduates for careers as actuaries, computer scientists, mathematicians, statisticians, teachers and more. Advanced skills in
mathematics are a must in many science-related careers. A degree in math is also a strong background for many computer science and computer engineering jobs.
As a math student, you will take advanced courses in algebra and calculus, along with electives in discrete
mathematics, differential equations, probability and statistics, and more.
Two degrees are offered in mathematics. The
Bachelor of Science program is more challenging; it's recommended for students who plan to pursue graduate study. The Bachelor of Arts program is designed for students whose professional goals are math-related, but do not require additional graduate study.
