College of Science
Math students enjoy a great deal of personal attention. Most math classes for math majors are 40 students or less, and many upper-level classes have fewer than 25 students. In addition, the math curriculum is flexible enough that students can take classes in other interest areas or pursue double major or a minor without too much difficulty. Math specializations include:
- Applied mathematics
- Business mathematics
- Mathematics teaching
- Mathematics with computer sciences option
- Mathematics with statistics option
- Operations research
Important note: When applying for any specialization within Mathematics, select "Mathematics" as your major. You will have the opportunity to specialize as you progress through the curriculum.
