If you look up any report on the “best” majors in college, not only is mathematics on the list, as a discipline it is critical to nearly all the other top 10 careers. In fact, mathematical occupations are growing much faster than the national average – with median salaries well above the national average in fields such as actuarial science, finance and mathematics. 

Lawrence Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences is an interdisciplinary program that gives you the opportunity to tailor your degree for the profession you wish to pursue, whether it is indeed actuarial science or mathematics – or a career in another field such as data mining or cyber defense.

In addition to the Applied Sciences and Actuarial Science concentrations, you can choose elective courses from a wide range of topics to prepare you for medical or graduate school or the business world. Your professors will also help you develop a strong capstone research project that will enhance your competitiveness
