The department offers a major and a minor in Mathematics.
|Former math majors are currently enrolled in mathematics or statistics graduate programs at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, North Carolina State University, and Pennsylvania State University. Due to high demand for mathematics teachers in elementary, middle and secondary schools, many Franklin Pierce students have found success with job placement in education.|
Mathematics has important applications in virtually all fields of study. The Mathematics major and math course offerings are designed to enhance a student's opportunities in any career that requires analytical problem-solving and quantitative skills.
The liberal arts core at Franklin Pierce University helps Mathematics students become effective communicators, disciplined thinkers, creative problem-solvers and solid contributors to a work team. This provides a competitive advantage in today's business climate and helps Franklin Pierce graduates make significant contributions in their jobs, careers and the diverse fields that utilize mathematics.
Coursework prepares students for a variety of employment opportunities in business and industry, or to continue their mathematics studies in graduate school. Ten core courses are required to complete the major. Students have the flexibility to choose additional electives tailored to their field of interest. They are encouraged to discuss their academic goals and career track with faculty advisors who will assist them in ensuring adequate preparation to succeed in their chosen career.
Much of what we see and experience in the natural world and in business can be expressed in mathematical language. My students often find that studying math helps them connect knowledge across disciplines, find their academic passion, and then succeed here at Franklin Pierce and after graduation.
