Student Learning Outcomes
Students who complete a mathematics major:
- possess an understanding and appreciation of the breadth and beauty of the mathematical sciences and their deep interconnecting principles;
- are able to work independently and confidently in mathematical situations;
- develop a solid understanding of the core fundamentals of undergraduate mathematics. Furthermore, students have the ability to communicate mathematical ideas with precision, clarity, and organization; and
- possess a positive attitude toward and derive enjoyment from studying and applying mathematics.
The data science programs are designed to provide students the mathematical, statistical and computer programming tools necessary to interpret an increasingly data-driven world. The minor is ideal for students from all disciplines who wish to develop strong quantitative skills which can be applied to their area of interest. It will provide a solid foundation that prepares students for further work, whether in graduate study or future employment. Students who complete either a mathematics – data science track major or a data science minor will:
- develop quantitative and analytical skills that are applicable to a wide range of disciplines;
- use data-driven solutions to make and defend informed judgments;
- apply data science to real world problems and communicate their solutions effectively; and
- develop teamwork skills.
Oregon Preliminary Teaching Licensure in Mathematics
A student majoring in Mathematics must also complete a Secondary Education major with Licensure. In order to complete the Secondary Education major with Licensure, students should begin taking education courses no later than their sophomore year. The student must be advised by faculty in both majors.
