Mathematics

Students in mathematics at Anderson University are taught how to solve problems and see how mathematics changes the way that we look at the world. As a student progresses through the major, students learn how to do complex calculations and the theorems behind these calculations.

We have two mathematics majors, a B.A. that includes 30 hours of coursework and a B.S. that includes 47 hours of coursework. 

What classes will I take?

Both mathematics majors require Calculus I, II, and III; Linear Algebra, and Problem Seminar. For the B.A., additional courses in mathematics are chosen to complement the student's mathematics interests and objectives through consultation with the student's department advisor. For the B.S., coursework also includes courses in physics, chemistry, and programming and prepares students for graduate-level study. 

What kind of jobs can I anticipate after graduation?

  • biomathematics
  • education
  • operations research
  • actuarial science
  • finance
  • mathematical modeling
  • statistics
