Student pursuing a bachelor degree in mathematics teach a computer how to learn tic-tac-toe. Study traffic light sequences, airline routes, chaos theory and the algebra of Rubik’s Cube. St. Joseph’s mathematics students have recently enjoyed these opportunities among many others.
A mathematics major examines advanced mathematical theory and analytical methods while focusing the student’s critical-thinking skills. It provides the student with a deep, profound education and, simultaneously, with the tools to succeed in many a career. The reason is that the backbone of Mathematics is pure deductive reasoning. This is a tool of near universal utility.
Majoring in Mathematics is, thus, an excellent choice. Doing so at St. Joseph’s College is a wise choice, as well. Small class sizes and extensive use of pedagogical technology characterize the environment; intellectual exploration characterize the experience.
Some career options in mathematics:
The Department now offers an Actuarial Strand. This is a set of courses designed to prepare students for the first two actuarial exams. An actuary is one who applies mathematical tools to serve the insurance industry.
We offer a B.S. in mathematics for those looking for moving on to a secondary degree in the field.
