Where am I?
Applied Mathematics Major
Mathematics is the international language that bridges barriers and builds the skills necessary for so many disciplines. Mathematicians solve, imagine and create the equations and theories that help the world keep moving and changing.
At Fontbonne, students can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in either mathematics for secondary education or applied mathematics. The first offers a balanced curriculum combining mathematical theory with practical application and classroom experience while preparing students for Missouri certification to teach high school mathematics. The second, an applied mathematics major, offers a sound foundation in both discrete and continuous mathematics with applications in any of the following areas: biology, chemistry, science, accounting, finance, business, psychology, graphic design, or food management.
The curriculum for both programs creates sophisticated learners who can effectively analyze and solve problems and then effectively communicate solutions. Whether you want to become a teacher, pursue graduate school or embark on an exciting STEM-related career, these mathematics majors at Fontbonne set you on the right course.
