Mathematics underlies nearly all we do at Rose‑Hulman, and a Mathematics or Biomathematics major opens the door to a vast range of career and research possibilities. Now is the perfect time to study math at Rose‑Hulman!
It all adds up
With one of the largest departments on campus, we have faculty experts in virtually every area of mathematics -- all ready to work with you one-on-one to see you succeed.
Mathematics is a practical and fascinating field, but it's also highly lucrative. Our graduates earn some of the highest starting salaries of any majors on campus, thanks to the versatility and logical rigor required to succeed as a mathematics major. Our grads have many exciting career options, including actuarial science, working in government research facilities, pharmaceutical companies, and leading tech companies.
If you love the life sciences, you'll want to explore one of our newest majors: biomathematics. This major gives you the mathematical and computational knowledge you'll need to address some of the world's most puzzling biological and health problems. Biomathematics majors have gone on to veterinarian programs and other exciting careers.
The department also directly supports two other majors. Data Science, one of the fastest growing areas in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, is a second-major-only program jointly offered by Mathematics and Computer Science & Software Engineering. Our graduates get an in-depth exposure to many areas needed to succeed in the field and have been highly sought-after by companies. In addition, if you are interested in an area of study at the intersection of mathematics, science/engineering and computing, you may also want to consider a second major in computational science.
We also participate in various mathematics competitions, host one of the longest-running conferences focused exclusively on undergraduate mathematics (click here for its history), and we publish the country's oldest academic journal dedicated exclusively to undergraduate mathematics research.
