Mathematicians are the expert problem-solvers behind many of today's most significant advances in business, computing, and applied research. Quincy University's Mathematics program will prepare you for one of the many contemporary careers that demand high levels of numerical skill.
Quincy's Mathematics program focuses on concept mastery with an emphasis on solving multifaceted problems. Your study will begin with a three-semester calculus sequence and includes mathematical logic, matrix theory, and probability. Majors also take courses in computer science and physics to broaden their exposure to the sciences. The rigor and design of our Mathematics curriculum makes for a smooth transition to graduate study or to a career.
Our program offers a bachelor of science degree and a minor in Mathematics, certification as a math teacher in grades 6-12, and a Pre-Actuarial Science program.
The Mathematics curriculum lends itself to a complementary minor in Computer Science or Business, adding a strong secondary credential for such professions as operations research or quantitative financial modeling.
Quincy partners with the University of Illinois to offer a Pre-Actuarial Science program designed to prepare students for professional careers in the field of risk assessment. Two years of coursework at Quincy are followed by two years of degree fulfillment in residence at the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign).
Small class sizes and mentoring by faculty members who hold doctoral degrees will enable you to tackle a challenging curriculum and exceed your goals. Whether you're puzzling over a tough problem, pondering career choices, or seeking a letter of recommendation that shows your individual strengths, Quincy gives you the advantage you need.
