Why Choose Mathematics ?
The Mathematics program is highly flexible, it is the basis for all natural science subjects and those in the business world. Applied math isn't really a single subject. Depending on how you're going to apply it, you'll get different values. A degree in mathematics will prepare you for jobs in statistics, actuarial sciences, operation analysis, mathematical modeling, and mathematics education, as well as for graduate school.
You can also choose the teaching career by enrolling in a Teacher Licensure Concentration and the Engineering 3+2 Program.
