Overview of the Mathematics Programs    

B.S. in Mathematics


 The Major in Mathematics provides a foundation in mathematics, plus electives in mathematics, computer science, biology, and/or physics. The program allows for flexibility in student goals by providing two tracks within the major.

MATHEMATICS TRACK

The Mathematics Track provides a strong foundation in mathematics that includes an introduction to real analysis and abstract algebra, plus a limited number of electives in mathematics, computer science, and/or physics.

  • Students are prepared for a career in a technical area or in other professional and scientific areas.
  • By judicious choice of electives and other courses, students may graduate prepared to undertake graduate study in mathematics, in computer science, in business, or in other professional and scientific areas.
  • By careful selection of additional courses in computer science, students can graduate prepared to complete the Master of Science in Computer Science at Maharishi University of Management in one year.
  • By also majoring in education, students can graduate prepared to teach mathematics in primary or secondary schools.

MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCES TRACK

The Mathematics and Sciences Track allows students to include more science courses than the Mathematics Track. It provides students with basic mathematics and computer science and an opportunity to take further courses in mathematics, computer science, or applied areas of interest to the student.

  • Students are prepared for a career in a technical area or, with careful attention to electives and other courses, for graduate study in computer science, business, and other professional or scientific areas.
  • By careful selection of additional courses in both computer science and mathematics, students can graduate prepared to complete the Master of Science in Computer Science at Maharishi University of Management in one year.
  • By also majoring in education, students can graduate prepared to teach mathematics in primary or secondary schools.
  • Although it is possible to proceed to graduate study in mathematics through this degree, it is preferable to do so by following the Mathematics Track.
Minor in Mathematics

The Minor in Mathematics is for students who wish to have knowledge of mathematics to support their study in computer science or any of the natural or applied sciences. To graduate with a minor in mathematics, students must successfully complete 20 credits of mathematics courses numbered 267 or higher and submit a portfolio.
