Mathematics Major

Mathematics (BS)

The Mathematics major combines coursework in both pure and applied mathematics with computer applications. It is designed to prepare students for graduate study or for careers in business, government, and industry.  Mathematics courses are also offered to support other programs, including business, chemistry, education, engineering, the health professions and physics.

Careers and Opportunities

Mathematics graduates often find employment with companies in technological fields such as computer science, engineering, statistics, and actuarial science, but are also highly valued by employers in non-technological fields because of their proven problem-solving abilities. A mathematics degree also provides a solid foundation for students who wish to teach or to pursue further studies. Departmental honors are available in Mathematics.

Pre-Professional Programs

The College of Science and Engineering also offers (in addition to advising for HBU degree requirements) specialized advising for students planning to continue their education after obtaining a degree from HBU by attending medical, dental, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, or an engineering school.
