As a major in mathematics, you will use logical reasoning, problem solving and complex situational analysis as you develop the skills to succeed in a variety of fields. Mathematics provides tools used by scientists to explore the universe, used by engineers to design devices that shape our society and used by scientists and engineers to describe their results and designs.
To understand our society and help shape its future, one must understand the influence of science and technology. This requires understanding mathematics and its uses.
A fundamental component of a liberal arts education, mathematics is an important ingredient of many careers in science, engineering and technology. You can also work closely with advisers from the Department of Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics and the Department of Education to pass on this necessary skill to future generations. Baker offers teacher licensure in math at the middle and secondary levels, and math composes a portion of the elementary education degree.
