About the Mathematics Comprehensive Degree Program

On Campus Icon On Campus

While completing the Mathematics Comprehensive program requirements at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, you will gain in-depth knowledge in mathematics. You also choose an emphasis in computer science, applied mathematics or general mathematics. Class topics range from applied courses in differential equations and numerical analysis to the abstract, including advanced calculus, number theory and modern algebra.

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 coursework and help you achieve your personal goals. At UNK, class sizes are small, and you can get to know your instructors, ask for help, or receive advice in a comfortable atmosphere.

"When I became a Math major at UNK, it was the first time in my life that I felt surrounded by like-minded people. I met a group of people who appreciated math as more than just a means to an end." "I didn’t really know much about choosing a college. Looking back, if I had known, I would have still picked UNK because of the small student-to-teacher ratios, the large number of opportunities for students, and the fact that Kearney is a small town yet big enough to have an active nightlife."
