MATH
Faculty
There is a massive need for mathematicians and very few people to help fill that gap. The small class sizes are optimal for detailed, personal, and focused training in each area. Students majoring in Mathematics at Master’s are challenged and strengthened incalculably in their studies to go into any mathematically based job and thrive.

Notes

All students who are interested in going to IBEX should consult their advisor as early as possible.

All students in the Mathematics Education emphasis are strongly urged to take ED400 and ED410 during their last two years, in addition to the courses required for the bachelor’s degree as a preparation for the Teaching Credential Program. Contact the Department of Liberal Studies & Education for more information.

A maximum of two (nongeneral education) upper division courses from another department may be used to satisfy the “additional upper division mathematics courses” requirement, subject to the prior approval of the student’s advisor.
