Mathematics B.A./B.S.

While completing the Mathematics program requirements, you will gain a broad and in-depth understanding of many areas of mathematics, including analysis and modern algebra. This major leaves room to explore a second major of your choice. Popular combinations include computer science, economics and business administration.

Some graduates earn graduate degrees in mathematics, statistics, business administration or the sciences. Other graduates work in the financial industries or in actuarial sciences. As a Mathematics student, a faculty adviser will guide you through your course-work and help you achieve your personal goals. At the University of Nebraska at Kearney, class sizes are small, and you can get to know your instructors, ask for help, or receive advice in a comfortable atmosphere.

“At UNK, if I had a question I knew I could go to my professor’s office and ask for help. The door was always open.” Machamire graduated with multiple majors: mathematics, finance and economics. “The programs prepared me for further studies with much ease. At UNK, I passed my first two actuarial exams which helped me land a fulltime job after graduate school.”
