BS in Mathematics
Your major in Math will provide the training and education you need to excel as a mathematician. You'll attain proficiency in modern mathematics and computation, inductive and deductive reasoning, and learn about the broader fields of computation and engineering.
As part of the Math Club, you’ll be able to interact with professors and classmates through fun and enriching activities. We do social activities such as hiking at South Mountain, hosting a movie night, and taking a field trip to the Cleveland County Fair. We also do service projects such as Octoberfest, Operation Christmas Child, and collecting cards for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
