What is the Role of a Mathematics Major?
The role of a math major is twofold. First, math majors will use computer algebra software to explore sophisticated applications of calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to science, technology, and engineering. Consequently, math majors will gain an understanding of how and why mathematics is important to our society. Secondly, math majors will explore the abstract underpinnings of why math works. Math majors will witness the elegance and logic of mathematical proof in preparation for university studies.
A degree in mathematics can open doors in virtually any industry or endeavor anywhere in the world. It is a highly respected degree among employers. Math majors often pursue career opportunities in finance, information technology, operations, and logistics as well as the traditional role of teaching.
The mathematics program of Galveston College endeavors to:
a) Foster an appreciation
b) Produce students that are detail oriented.
c) Promote numeracy among students.
d) Provide a full range of convenient course offerings to support all majors
