About the Mathematics Degree Program

On Campus

While earning a Mathematics degree at UNK, you'll receive both a broad survey of the field as well as an in-depth understanding of many areas of mathematics, including analysis and modern algebra. Many math majors go on to earn graduate degrees in mathematics, statistics, business administration or the sciences. Other graduates work in fields such as financial industries, actuarial sciences, computer systems, education and more.

The math degree program leaves room to explore a second major of your choice. Popular combinations include computer science, economics and business administration.

As a Mathematics student, a faculty adviser will guide you through your course-work and help you achieve your personal goals. You will also benefit from small class sizes that allow you to get to know your instructors, ask for help and receive personalized instruction 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.”
