Why Major in Mathematics?

The BA in Mathematics at Eastern University offers students the opportunity to take courses in advanced calculus, discrete mathematics, linear algebra, and upper-level courses in the foundations and philosophy of mathematics, real analysis and abstract algebra. Students also take courses on computer programming and physics.

The BA in Mathematics can also be combined with another major or minor in one of the liberal arts or sciences. Many students combine the BA in Mathematics with a BA in Secondary Education and go onto become mathematics teachers. Others have studied astronomy, philosophy, chemistry, and business alongside mathematics.

“We were taught how to do math, but we were also taught how to use math to explore our faith and the world around us. I have never known God more than when I learned to view Him through the lens of mathematics, the language of the working universe.”
