The three LMU mathematics programs prepare students for a wide range of mathematical careers in industry, business, government and teaching, as well as for admission to graduate programs or professional schools. Regardless of the program they choose, LMU math students have tremendous flexibility in their future career options because of their abilities to problem solve, write logical arguments, think critically, learn quickly, analyze data, and clearly communicate complex ideas to others. These programs begin with the same foundational courses, allowing students to explore their mathematical interests before selecting a particular program. All mathematics majors obtain a broad foundation in pure, applied, and computational mathematics. Mathematics and Applied Mathematics majors earn a Bachelor of Science degree while students planning to become teachers earn a Bachelor of Arts degree and have the ability to complete the SB 2042 California Preliminary Single Subject (Secondary) Teaching Credential during their four years at LMU.
