Offered: On Campus Apply

Students of mathematics receive rigorous training in a Christian environment to prepare them for careers in elementary education, secondary education, or for graduate studies in mathematics. The department also provides background courses in mathematics necessary for other areas of study such as physics, chemistry, biology, or kinesiology. We emphasize both pure and applied mathematics. The fundamental theories and principles of mathematics are taught as well as their applications. This program is accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).
