Why Major in Mathematics at VU?

Personalized Instruction

Each and every class is taught by a professor, and not by a graduate student, as is the case at most large public universities. In addition, a low student-to-faculty ratio promotes a great deal of interaction between the student and the professor.

Non-Competitive Atmosphere

Vanguard University students are challenged individually and do not compete with their peers for grades. Grades are percentage-based, not curve-based; grade sabotage does not occur here.

Teacher Preparation

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing has approved the B.S. Mathematics degree program with the Mathematics Education option.


A VU education isn’t all mathematics and science. Students at VU experience a well-rounded program of liberal arts courses and extra-curricular activities which give balance to their education. In fact, it is this balance that has made VU graduates so appealing to schools and industry.
