What You Can Do with a Major in Mathematics

We design our mathematics courses recognizing that there is an art to problem solving. It involves exploration, critical thinking, goal-setting and curiosity.

The mathematics program at Aurora University is offered in two tracks. The first track is geared toward students interested in business and industry careers or graduate training in mathematics or other disciplines. The second track is for students seeking teacher licensure in mathematics at the pre-college level. Our faculty can help you identify the educational and career paths that are right for you.
