Math Major

Mathematics students at UIndy are submerged into a world of math theory and practice. You'll not only learn laws and rules, you'll learn why those laws and rules work and how to use them to get the solution you're seeking. A degree in mathematics prepares you for life after school and offers you a large scope of career opportunities. While some choose to further their learning in graduate programs, others easily find jobs right out of college. Students can also choose a math minor.

Program strengths

  • Small class sizes foster a more personal experience, and the ability to jump into an extensive curriculum from the very first semester
  • Low faculty-to-student ratio means more face time with professors, who have significant practical and academic experience in their fields
  • A course list including a wide variety of math applications
  • Lessons that teach you to engage with mathematics in theory and practice
  • Classes prepare you to see math as more than an equation with an end result, but as a field with many possibilities
“My favorite aspect of the Mathematics Department at UIndy is the caring, nurturing attitude of the professors. I felt that I had my very own math family. I still keep in contact with several of my math professors, and they are always happy to help me. Majoring in math at UIndy has given me a life-long support group which I value greatly. It has also fostered in me an excitement for learning math and a drive to succeed.”

Potential careers in Mathematics

Studying mathematics can lead you to multiple careers or even other fields. Our students have worked for Bausch & Lomb, Microsoft, Exxon, Eli Lilly and more. Graduate school is also a common route that our students take after graduation. Some fields stemming from mathematics include:

  • Cost analysis
  • Mathematics of supply chain management
  • Linear programming

Mathematics might be for you if:

  • You have an affinity for math and problem solving
  • You like working with numbers
  • You work best with objectives and absolutes

Math minor

If you have an interest in or talent for mathematics but have decided to choose another major, adding a math minor can complement your studies and help you improve your quantitative skills. Completion of this minor requires a minimum of 18-20 credit hours in required courses. 

Curriculum Guides

These curriculum guides outline the classes you'll need to take as a mathematics major. The general education curriculum guide lists your class options and requirements to fulfill UIndy's general education requirements, while the mathematics curriculum guide lists the classes needed to major in mathematics. You'll need to look at both guides to get a complete picture of what classes you'll take at UIndy.
