The program for a mathematics major in the Kopchick College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics has three options. A student may pursue a degree with a major in mathematics or a degree with a major in mathematics with a concentration in either applied mathematics or actuarial science. Those completing a degree with a major in mathematics will be prepared to continue their studies in mathematics in graduate school, though some may enter business, industry, or government service. Students receiving a mathematics degree with a concentration in applied mathematics will be primarily prepared to enter business, industry, or government service in an area where mathematics or computer science is used, or to continue their studies in applied mathematics or computer science in graduate school. Students in the actuarial science concentration take additional course work in finance and economics, preparing them to complete the first two professional actuarial exams and to pursue employment in the areas of insurance and investment.
