Mathematics Major

Mathematics Major Overview

Unlike many small colleges, mathematics is part of an exceptionally strong Division of Mathematics, Natural and Computer Science. There are two degree tracks, a B.A. in mathematics and a B.S. in Mathematics Education. Mathematic Majors are prepared to enter graduate school, the computer industry, teaching, scientific research and the actuarial field.
In addition, business, psychology and the social sciences depend heavily on mathematically aware persons. Greenville Mathematics Majors are working for companies like Boeing, Caterpillar, EDS, Southwestern Bell, Dow Chemical, American States Insurance and Lockheed-Martin. Many of our students successfully obtain summer research positions with governmental agencies and universities and are offered assistantships in quality graduate schools like Iowa State University and the University of Illinois.

Greenville professors are committed to providing an academic learning environment that allows you to thrive and grow into a highly competent professional. Course work is rigorous and you'll take the same courses as those designed for majors in each of the science disciplines. There are no abbreviated courses simply to meet minimum professional-school requirements. Our faculty takes a personal interest in all our students, both in and out of the classroom and will help you personally figure out your career plans.
