Mathematics is a basic tool for understanding modern society as well as a crucial requirement for many careers in science, engineering, business, and the professions. Research in this living, dynamic subject is at the highest level in history; CareerCast.com also ranked mathematician as the third best job to hold in 2015.

An undergraduate degree in mathematics prepares students for a variety of careers in government and business, for secondary teaching, for graduate study, and with proper planning, for a variety of professional programs. Graduate study is advisable for some business and governmental positions and for college and university teaching and research. The department also offers a minor and partners with the Departments of Computer Science and Statistics and Actuarial Science to offer the undergraduate Certificate in Large Data Analysis.

## Related Certificate: Large Data Analysis

The Certificate in Large Data Analysis can be earned in addition to a B.A. or B.S. degree in mathematics. The certificate focuses on handling, processing, and extracting information from large data sets. As computers have become faster and smaller, more information can be gathered and used for a large range of applications, such as for weather forecasting; identifying people and trends utilizing Facebook or other social media; understanding the genome; and searching for disease causes and cures, as well as many other areas of study. The certificate is interdisciplinary, requiring courses from three areas of study—computer science, mathematics, and statistics. Computer science teaches students how to handle large amounts of data and how to implement the algorithms to process them while statistics helps students to understand what can and cannot be legitimately inferred from the data. Mathematics focuses on algorithms and methods for connecting these important areas of data collection.

Credit earned in MATH:0100 Basic Algebra I and MATH:0300 Basic Geometry does not count toward graduation.

The sequences MATH:1850 Calculus I and MATH:1860 Calculus II, and MATH:1550 Engineering Mathematics I: Single Variable Calculus and MATH:1560 Engineering Mathematics II: Multivariable Calculus are similar, but they cover the material in a different order and with different emphases. Students who have taken the first semester of one sequence must consult with their advisor before taking the second semester of the other sequence; they also must take a math placement test.

Students who consider taking MATH:1860 Calculus II after MATH:1380 Calculus and Matrix Algebra for Business or MATH:1460 Calculus for the Biological Sciences must consult with their advisor.

Graduate students may not earn graduate credit in courses numbered below 3000.
