Additional information

The Mathematics sequence is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of traditional and contemporary Mathematics. Highlights include introductions to cryptography, project management, networks, mathematical modelling, and finance. The major also covers the traditional areas required by those intending to become primary or secondary teachers, as the teaching of Mathematics from K-12 is a high demand field and the demand will grow in the future. A major in Mathematics can also lead to interesting careers in areas such as operations research, cryptography, finance and computing.
