Pure Mathematics Emphasis, B.A. in Mathematics

Due to the ever-increasing influence of technology, the study of mathematics is crucial for both logical thinking and the preparation for any technical vocation. Mathematics is also a vital part of a well-rounded liberal arts education.

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. The innovative curriculum includes options to complete a Biblical Studies minor and study abroad in TMU’s Israel Campus, Italy summer semester, and GO! Trips. Through the entire experience, students are prepared not only for math careers but for everyday ministry.

The Mathematics curriculum is designed to provide a strong foundational core for the student interested in pursuing graduate study and in offering students the opportunity for preparation in fields relating to applied mathematics, such as statistics and engineering. The Department of Mathematics provides a thorough and robust offering in mathematics as a part of God’s creation in a concentrated effort to integrate faith and learning. A minor in mathematics is available to students from all other departments and can be pursued in conjunction with every other major on campus.

Students in the Pure Mathematics program will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of fundamental algebraic structures (e.g. groups, rings, and fields).
  • Demonstrate mastery of the rigorous development and theory of calculus.
  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of number theory and a familiarity with the history of mathematics.
  • Demonstrate a basic working knowledge of the properties of complex numbers and complex-valued functions.

Students are required to complete 24 Mathematics Core units, 26-27 Mathematics Emphasis units, 37 General Education units, and 21 Bible units. A minimum total of 122 units are required to graduate.
