At Asbury University, you will receive a Christ-centered and student-focused education that will provide you with the background needed to succeed in the industry. Big-box schools may have larger departments and bigger budgets, but you do not get better training by being one of hundreds. As an AU student, in both introductory and upper division classes, the small class sizes ensure professors are available to answer your questions, leaving you ready for the steps ahead. In addition, the Foundations program will offer you the resources to think deeply and engage society in a marketplace that demands integrative thinking.
Many AU students do research and internships with other highly respected institutions and companies, and every year AU receives compliments about the quality, knowledge and work ethic of our students. Many of those students then receive scholarships for graduate school.
As a Mathematics major, you can expect to take courses like:
The Mathematics major allows you flexibility in choosing a minor area of study as an application of the mathematical and critical thinking skills you learn in Math Department courses. Suggested minors range from the sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, or the Computational Science emphasis) to Business Administration, Art & Design or Media Communication.
The Hamann-Ray Science Center is home to the Mathematics Department classrooms and offices.
The Mathematics major prepares you for graduate study in mathematics, mathematical physics, operations research, statistics, or a related area that relies heavily upon the foundation of theoretical mathematics. With this background, opportunities open up for eventual employment in teaching and research at the college or university level, or in being a member of a research team in government or industry.
