Programs of Study in Mathematics

The LMU Mathematics Department offers undergraduate degrees in mathematics (B.A. and B.S.) and applied mathematics (B.S.) and a Master’s degree in teaching mathematics (M.A.T.). In addition, we offer several options for minoring in mathematics and we support a mathematics concentration for the Liberal Studies major.

Mathematics majors obtain a broad foundation in pure, applied, and computational mathematics that prepares them for a wide variety of career options in industry, business, government and teaching, as well as for admission to graduate programs or professional schools.  Recent LMU math alumni now work for Intel, Raytheon, Kaiser Permanente, Google, JPL, and Mercer Consulting.  Others have pursued advanced degrees in mathematics, statistics, economics, public health and psychology.  Still others have become educators or attended law and medical school.  All of our students have enormous flexibility in their future opportunities because of the training and experiences gained through our programs.

In addition to their coursework, our students participate in a variety of activities outside the classroom, including a seminar series featuring academic and industry professionals, performing research with faculty, attending and giving presentations at conferences, and many others.
