Degree Requirements

Concordia University Texas' Mathematics Major offers:

courses in algebra, analysis, calculus, continuous and discrete mathematics, geometry, modeling, number theory, probability, and statistics. In these courses, students develop the ability to reason clearly, analytically, and abstractly.
The ultimate goal in all of the courses is to help students develop the ability to solve complex problems.

 

Special Features

The average size of a Mathematics class at Concordia is 15, and no classes are taught by teaching assistants. Mathematics faculty members pride themselves in their willingness to help their students explore, discover, and learn mathematics. They look forward to having the opportunity to help students learn mathematics outside of the classroom.

Career Possibilities

The career opportunities for students who major in mathematics are numerous. Industries are looking for students who major in mathematics because they have the problem solving skills and the analytical skills that their employees need. Some of the careers that mathematics majors have pursued are: programming, teaching, actuarial science, statistics, and operations research analysis. For those who wish to pursue teaching as a career, CTX has an excellent teacher education program.
