Mathematics Concentrations

Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, space, relation, change and various topics of pattern, form and entity and goes far beyond the traditional math topics studied in high school. Mathematicians seek out patterns and other quantitative aspects of the entities they study, whether these entities are numbers, spaces, natural sciences, computers or abstract concepts. Mathematics students focus on the basics of analysis and algebra, together with topology, number theory, logic, numerical analysis, dynamica systems and differential equations.

    Applied mathematics

    This concentration is for students interested in the application of mathematics to another field or discipline. For example, applied mathematics in biology includes such topics as bioinformatics and combinatorial drug design that are used in the pharmaceutical industry. Graduates are prepared to enter graduate or professional school, or go directly into the workforce.

    Mathematics teacher certification

    This concentration is for students interested in teaching mathematics at the secondary level, grades 8-12. With a major in mathematics, they will also be prepared to enter the broader workforce and to pursue graduate or professional school.
