The study of mathematics includes courses in logic, numerical concepts, algebraic and geometric principles, mathematical modeling, and sequential development. Our professors use technology as an integral part of the classroom. We offer both a major (BS) and a minor in mathematics.
Math majors go on to graduate school, and/or build careers in fields like business, industry, teaching, physical sciences, and life sciences.
Some of our mathematics graduates are employed as:
- Professor, Polk State College
- Software Developer, Johnson Controls
- Scientist, Naval Surface Warfare Center
- Math Instructor, Virginia Commonwealth University
Lynchburg’s mathematics graduates have attended graduate school at George Mason University, UNC-Wilmington, and other institutions.
