Mount Saint Mary's College



Greetings from the Mathematics Department!

You may wonder what you can do with a mathematics major (besides be a math teacher). Well, the actual answer is anything you want! There is a tremendous need in the workforce right now for people who have a background in mathematics, statistics, and/or computer science. 

A mathematics major will prepare you to

  • solve any problem,
  • use logic for math and other areas of life,
  • think critically, and
  • help other people to understand complicated ideas.

The mathematics program at Mount St. Mary’s College will prepare you for a wide variety of mathematical careers in teaching or industry or for admission to graduate school. And if you do want to be a mathematics teacher, you will be able to graduate in four years with both your mathematics degree and your California teaching credential!

Here’s what we have to offer you as a Mathematics major:

  • small classes,
  • a close-knit community of mathematics lovers,
  • a schedule of classes that works for you, and
  • you will never have to worry about being the only female in your math class!

We also offer several minors: mathematics, computer programming, and computer information systems.

For more information, contact our Admissions Department or, better yet, contact me! I’d be delighted to meet you and talk to you about our department, our major, and minors.
