Bachelor of Arts
Mathematics at Greenville University
Mathematics at Greenville University prepares students for many different callings. Our emphasis on precise deductive thought, problem solving, careful communication, and work with technology prepares you to move comfortably into many fields. While teaching mathematics and graduate work in mathematics is something many of our graduates pursue, an even greater number head into diverse fields such as telecommunications, computing, medicine, the aerospace industry, statistics, accounting, and actuarial science. Mathematics graduates have also been successful as ministers, professional artists, lawyers, and coaches. One of the advantages of the mathematics program is its flexibility. Double majoring in mathematics and most any other major is possible, leading to even more powerful preparation for what and where you are being called.
