# Mathematics Major (BS)

#### ALSO OFFERED AS A MINOR

Mathematics may be one of the world’s oldest sciences, but it continues to play a vital role today – whether that be in a career directly related to mathematics or in the business world, where the use of quantitative skills are valued.

As a **mathematics major** at George Fox University, you will learn the mathematical theories, computational techniques, algorithms and computer technology needed to solve engineering, economic, physics, scientific and business problems. And, in addition to your math classes, you will take a liberal-arts core of courses – all taught from a Christian worldview where faith is integrated with learning.

Many of our graduates become math teachers in high schools or colleges, while others pursue careers in the sciences. Regardless of what field you enter, you will be equipped to solve real-world problems in our technology-driven society.

Potential teachers will be exposed to both the content within the field and the pedagogical tools necessary to become excellent teachers of mathematics. Graduates moving into either math-related areas or general business settings will be able to use the quantitative tools of mathematics as well as the deductive thought processes to solve the problems they will face.
