Undergraduate Mathematics Programs

Develop a proficiency in the core concepts of higher mathematics, while also receiving the training to excel in a broad range of fields involving computation and engineering.

The mission of the Mathematics program is to provide a high quality foundation in the core concepts of the traditional and the modern elements of higher mathematics; to produce graduates with high-level problem solving and decision-making skills; to prepare them for further learning in the discipline; and to prepare the graduates to make significant contributions for God and humanity by teaching them how to use clear, systematic quantitative and analytical reasoning skills.


What You’ll Learn

Through the practical application of mathematical principles, students develop skills in high-level problem-solving, decision-making and reasoning. Students also develop an ability to communicate complex mathematics in both written and oral forms. The University’s Math Club provides additional opportunities for academic and professional growth through interaction with professors and classmates.

Available Programs

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

In addition to the University’s required general education and prerequisites, an additional 33 hours of credit is required for the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree. Required courses represent 27 hours, while six additional hours will come from elective courses. The degree also requires the completion of CISS 201: Programming Language I.
