Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics
Distinguish Yourself with a Degree in Mathematics
Math majors at Rosemont learn far more than the necessary equations and functions. We use an inquiry-based learning approach to mathematics, which engages you in posing questions and bringing real-life experiences to solving problems. This process teaches you “how to think" instead of “what to think," preparing you for any challenge.
With a degree in Mathematics, you’ll learn to accurately explain information presented in mathematical form and make appropriate inferences based on that information. You will use the quantitative analysis of data as the basis for deep and thoughtful judgments, drawing insightful, carefully qualified conclusions from this work.
If you are considering a career in math education, Rosemont will get you ready for teacher certification for grades 7-12. In addition to your required classes for your degree, you will take a specific set of Education courses that are designed to prepare to take the teacher certification exam. If you choose this path, advisors from each discipline will work together to support you and ensure you’re meeting all the criteria to become a certified math teacher.
Why Study Mathematics at Rosemont?
At Rosemont, we believe that no matter what discipline you study, the ability to communicate effectively and solve problems are cornerstones of success. That’s why you’ll have learning experiences focused on not only advanced math concepts, but also courses that will teach you how to effectively communicate mathematical reasoning, readying you for success in any profession. Rosemont prepares all its students to build a career based on sound leadership, ethics, and communication that combine with strong skills in your field of study.
