Mathematics

Math sometimes is called the “Queen of the Sciences.” That’s because it’s important to all sciences — and almost everything in the world. It’s at the root of scientific measurements, as well as engineering, economics and even sports. A degree from Bradley’s math department challenges your problem-solving skills and shows you how your skills can be successfully used in professional settings.

All majors give you a firm grounding in research and career preparation. You work through advanced algebra, calculus and statistics. The math major gives you a general foundation in principles. If you’re interested in (WHAT’S A QUICK SUMMARY OF TYPICAL ACTUARIAL SCIENCE INTERESTS?), you can pursue an actuarial science degree. If you want to teach the next generation, you can pursue a math education degree. If you’re interested in (WHAT’S A QUICK SUMMARY OF STATISTICS INTERESTS?), you can pursue a statistics major.
