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. At the UNK, class sizes are small and you can get to know your instructors, ask for help, and personalized instruction in a comfortable atmosphere.

“As I look back, I have never regretted my decision to attend UNK. As a math major, I knew that I would obtain the knowledge and problem solving skills to be successful in my future business career. Along the way the campus community provided a great support system; however the math department provided another community of its own where students and professors got to know each other very well and ‘face the challenge’ together. With a later addition of a finance minor and my math background, by graduation, I knew that UNK had provided the knowledge, the experience and a great college community to make my degree very meaningful and valuable."
