A universal degree


Mathematics is the language of our universe, providing a common link to all scientific and technological disciplines.

As a mathematics student, you’ll learn to interpret, understand and solve global problems. And you’ll be following in the footsteps of a former astronaut.

Col. Tom Akers, Math’73, MS Math ’75, was a member of NASA’s December 1993 mission that successfully grappled and repaired the Hubble Space Telescope. And he’s just one of the math department’s many distinguished alumni. Alumni that have gone on to work for Fortune 500 companies like IBM, Texas Instruments, Chevron and Boeing.

And you’ll be part of an evolving program – one that caters to its students and wants success for all of them. Our math majors have some of the highest student-success rates of any math program in the country.
