A student completing the Mathematics major should be able to attend graduate school or receive employment in such areas as mathematics, computing, engineering, business, economics, statistics, cartography, the physical sciences, and other fields requiring strong quantitative skills. The Mathematics major is also designed to prepare the student to teach the Mathematics courses commonly offered in middle and secondary schools. All majors are required to pass a Mathematics Department assessment examination. Mathematics courses numbered below 105 are not credited for the major. A maximum of three hours in internship may count toward the major.
CMU has a chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, the national honorary undergraduate mathematics fraternity (advi-sors: Dr. Jerry Priddy and Prof. Pam Gordy).
