mathematics

Although math serves as the language of science and technology, it’s also the foundation for modeling, problem solving and communicating challenges. If math is a language you speak fluently, you should consider it for your major – especially if you want a career in which quantitative reasoning and logical thinking are key. Whether you want to teach math, work in finance or pursue computer science, WOU’s program will get you the skills you need.

I’m also a minor with multiple tracks!

Mathematics minor

If your idea of math nirvana is a heavy dose of calculus, look no further. Our mathematics minor goes well with a chemistry major or a computer science major, but it also might be a good match for students majoring in education, geography or Earth science.
