Mathematics

Bradley’s mathematics program develops your understanding of math processes and applies your knowledge to professional settings.

Preparing You for Success

You learn how math explains the world around you, and you apply that knowledge to business, computers and other sciences. Classes introduce you to research and high-level analytical tools you can use professionally. The major gives you a broad foundation in statistics, problem-solving and advanced math, then you can tailor it to your career interests. It can be paired with a second major, such as chemistry, computer science, finance or physics.

By the time you graduate, your experiences may include:

  • Close relationships with faculty in small classes
  • Opportunities to network and present research at regional conferences and math competitions
  • A yearlong senior project

Making Your Mark

Math majors are valuable in cryptography, data analytics, financial forecasting and software engineering. Recent graduates have attended graduate school at the University of Colorado-Boulder, University of Illinois and University of Iowa. They're working for schools, insurance companies, financial institutions and consulting firms.
