LINUX and Cluster Computing
Majors and Minors
As a math major, you’ll get a broad education in both theoretical and applied mathematics. You’ll also gain the scientific knowledge and the problem-solving, computing, and communication skills critical to a successful career.
Our Biomath major blends math, biology, and computer science. It's truly a major designed for the complex analysis at the heart of today's most exciting advances in biological and medical science.
Computational Science Second Major
This second major is a great way to expand your math skills and apply them to real-world problems.
We get a lot of attention from the faculty and they really know their stuff.
Actuaries analyze the financial costs of risk and uncertainty, using mathematics, statistics, and financial theory to assess the probability that an event will occur. They help clients develop policies that minimize the cost of that risk. Actuaries’ largely work in the insurance industry. Their median annual wage was $97,070 in 2015. – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
Mathematicians conduct research to develop and understand mathematical principles. They also analyze data to help solve real-world problems. Employment for mathematicians is expected to grow 21 percent from 2014 to 2024. Businesses will need mathematicians to analyze an increasing volume of electronic data. Their median annual wage was $111,110 in 2015. – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
