Students majoring in Mathematics receive a solid foundation in mathematics with courses ranging from the calculus sequence to foundations in mathematics, as well as linear and abstract algebra and calculus-based physics.
Small class sizes allow ODU professors to interact, instruct and mentor math students on a more personal level. This hands-on approach benefits our students as they study and master complex skills. A liberal arts degree also offers greater flexibility in a wide range of careers.
Students choose from a selection of courses including mathematical statistics, differential equations, real and complex analysis, geometry, and physics to complete major requirements.
Students learn to communicate mathematical ideas in written and oral forms. Problem-solving skills are used in a variety of situations.
This major is designed to prepare students for careers in industry, government, or for additional study in graduate school. Minor concentrations can be used to enhance career opportunities.
Ohio Dominican's Department of Mathematics has implemented innovative teaching approaches to increase interaction between students and faculty and offer better flexibility for courses scheduling and degree completion. Read more about The Flipped Classroom and One Room Schoolhouse.
Majors can work as peer tutors in the Math Lab. They can also collaborate with faculty on projects. There are also summer internship opportunities and the chance to present work at conferences.
