Mathematics
Mathematics is a powerful language that enables one to understand the physical world and to contribute to developments in our technological society. Mathematicians are in high demand in all sectors of the economy. Hightech industry and biomedical research institutions seek graduates who are skilled in programming, computation, and signal processing. Financial firms need graduates who are accomplished in mathematical modeling, risk analysis, and statistics. The field of education is open to graduates who can clearly communicate mathematical ideas orally and in writing.
The mission of the mathematics program is to provide a comprehensive course curriculum that equips students with advanced analytical and problemsolving skills. Mathematics majors are generally expected to enter the program having already completed MAT 103 College Algebra (or the equivalent) with a grade of B or higher. Students lacking the prerequisite may take College Algebra and count it as a general elective when they are accepted into the program.
