Overview

Mathematics is central to an advanced technological society, and the mathematics department at Iowa State University plays a major role in its teaching, research, and service at the university.

Employers know that the mathematics degree is a degree in creative, critical, and logical thinking. Many biotech, computer, and engineering companies need employees with mathematical knowledge, and need employees who know how to think and solve problems.

Mathematics is also a good background for many other fields. Some mathematics majors end up becoming:

  • biologists
  • chemists
  • computer scientists
  • doctors
  • engineers
  • lawyers
  • linguists
  • management consultants
  • physicists
  • psychologists
  • teachers

The program in mathematics offers training suitable for students planning to enter secondary school teaching, to work in mathematics and computation for industry or government, or to continue their studies in graduate school.
