Overview

Depending on their career goals, math majors can choose to earn a Bachelor of Science degree or a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics at Concordia University, St. Paul. In earning either degree, students will encounter a blend of classical math theory and practical problem solving techniques, but more emphasis is placed on proofs and theory in the BA degree and the BS degree is more applied. All of the courses in the math major are offered face to ­face in small classes (usually less than 20 students) and the emphasis is on actively solving problems in class. Throughout the curriculum students will learn to use technology, including computer algebra systems, geometry modeling software, spreadsheets and computer programming to model and solve problems. In some courses students investigate topics and learn to present their ideas professionally, both orally and in a written format. Some of these topics lead to independent research projects that students can present at undergraduate research conferences and help the students earn honors in the major.
