 A degree in mathematics is designed to prepare the student for a variety of career paths. Rivier University mathematics majors are prepared for graduate study, for teaching or for careers in business, industry, or other fields. Students in the program develop the ability to think clearly and logically, to analyze and solve complex problems, and to acquire the tools and principles needed in the application of mathematics. The curriculum exposes students to the beauty of mathematics, the exhilaration of conquering a challenge, and the role of mathematics in the development of human knowledge. The major in mathematics leaves the student with ample electives to complement their degree with a minor in science, computer science, business, communications, or other area of interest. 

Students desiring certification as middle and secondary school teachers must fulfill the requirements of the mathematics major. For information on the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Education (Day) , refer to the Education Department section of the catalog.

Students in all majors are encouraged to minor in mathematics. Employers and graduate schools look favorably on students who have taken extra mathematics courses.
