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.

"A math degree seemed to be the most natural thing for me to pursue. Since I was young, I have always had a deep passion for mathematics. Making the transition from undergraduate to graduate studies is such a huge leap in expectations, but my busy extra-curricular schedule and tough coursework at UNK helped give me the confidence that I could succeed in graduate school."
