Mathematics - BS
St. Kate's mathematics majors will study mathematics in an environment that stresses close student-faculty interaction and individual support. Faculty members will encourage students to take an active role in their educational experiences and will foster a cooperative learning environment. Students will have the opportunity to work as a tutor or teaching assistant in the Mathematical Sciences Department and collaborate with faculty members on research and projects in both mathematics and computer science. Students will also have opportunities to participate in mathematics contests such as the Putnam, the NCS-MAA team competition, and the Konhauser team competition.
The curriculum includes courses in mathematics and computer science. If a student decides to pursue a B.S., she will be required to take one full year of either physics or chemistry.
Mathematics majors have become lawyers, senior research associates, statistical consultants, vice presidents of corporations, teachers, programmers, analysts, actuaries, physicists, engineers, and Fulbright scholars.
This major is offered in the College for Women only.
