Mathematics Degree

Programs of Study: Mathematics

You can do that!

With a degree in mathematics from LCU, you can do it! Do what? Whatever you need to! Calculate it! Count it! Convert it! Communicate it! A mathematician knows how to analyze, infer, and conclude. You can do that, and more! Career opportunities in teaching, industry, business, and more will be yours for the choosing.

Make your time count at LCU with one of our degree plans:

  • Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
  • Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Educator Certificate
  • Bachelor of Arts with Emphasis in Pre-Engineering

Mathematics is an essential part of any job’s operations, and it has been proven time and time again that mathematicians are good employees in any field. Mathematicians are created to solve problems—and every career has problems.

We have graduates in a variety of jobs: 

  • College Professors
  • High School/Middle School Teachers
  • Engineers
  • Certified Public Accountants
  • Business owners
  • Informational Technology/Computer Science
  • Government

Educator Certification

Students also have the opportunity to spend one additional year and become certified to teach mathematics to high school/middle school students. Students gain all the advantages of a math degree, fully prepared as a mathematician, but also have a secure career path as a high school teacher. This degree will ensure that you are well trained in classroom management and effective teaching techniques. Teaching is a noble and rewarding career, and the School of Education at LCU has an excellent reputation for training teachers.

What Makes Us Unique

Unlike many universities that use part-time and adjunct faculty to teach many of the classes, particularly freshman-level classes, at LCU, students studying matematics will be taught by professors of distinction:

  • All four members of our math faculty have gone through the LCU Learning Academy and been awarded the honor of being named “Learning Scholars,” meaning they focus on the best innovative teaching practices.
  • Our students have the opportunity to “get their hand dirty” on real world data. Departments across campus have research projects with large data files. They utilize the statistical skills of our students and faculty.
  • Students also have opportunities to study abroad in Avila, Spain during their sophomore fall semester.

U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics reports:

  • Employment in math occupations is projected to grow 28 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations, and will add about 67,200 jobs. Growth is anticipated as businesses and government agencies continue to emphasize the use of big data, which math occupations analyze.
  • May 2021, math occupations had a median annual wage of $98,680, as compared to the median annual wage for all occupations of $45,760.
