Mathematics is the science of numbers, shapes, probabilities, and measurements. It is a universal language in which information is stated in the simplest possible form. Mathematics has a dual nature—it is an independent discipline valued for its precision and elegance, and it is an essential source of ideas and techniques for other scientific endeavors.
The liberal arts component requires students to acquire a broad background in communication skills, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The major core focuses on developing students’ understanding and appreciation of the mathematical sciences, problem solving skills, and their ability to combine knowledge and skills in productive ways. Core mathematics subjects include calculus and advanced calculus, linear algebra, methods of proof, abstract algebra, computer programming, and statistics.
The Mathematics program from Colorado State University prepares students for a wide variety of occupations in business, industry, government, and education. Actuarial science graduates who have passed the first two professional actuary exams can expect to find positions with excellent entry-level salaries. Applied mathematics graduates continue to find employment opportunities in government and private industry.
Many pursue advanced degrees in mathematics, computational science, or engineering. About one-third of general mathematics graduates continue on to graduate school in mathematics or other disciplines, with the rest finding employment in a large variety of capacities.
Education students spend a semester teaching a classroom and have excellent job placement.
Participation in internships, volunteer activities, or cooperative education opportunities is highly recommended to enhance practical training and development. Graduates who continue to pursue advanced degrees can attain more responsible positions with the possibility of rising to top professional levels.
