, IL,
Students of mathematics at Eastern enjoy an outstanding learning environment. The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a large number of courses, taught in small classes (maximum class size is 35, with most much smaller), by an exceptionally caring, dedicated, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable faculty.

About

The department offers three challenging and rewarding undergraduate majors (as well as two graduate degrees).

The B.A. in Mathematics, has traditionally prepared students for advanced degrees, both in mathematics and in other fields such as medicine, law, business, and science. Students who are preparing for careers in industry or government often choose this major. They combine selected mathematics courses with courses in business, data processing, economics, physics, or chemistry, for example to provide the background for a wide range of careers.

A major in Mathematics (BA with Teacher Licensure) prepares students to become secondary (9-12) teachers in the state of Illinois.

For students also wanting to be eligible to teach middle school mathematics, additional Middle Level Education courses are required.
