Placement Resources

Math Degrees

BA/BS Mathematics

Math majors will develop basic computational skills, mathematical processes, and knowledge that leads to real-life applications, modeling and problem-solving. This degree helps students’ master mathematical competencies for future careers in areas such as Cryptographer, Statistician, operations research analyst, algorithms engineer, or market researcher.

View Degree

BA/BS in Mathematics Education

Math Education majors will prepare to teach mathematical concepts to students at intermediate, middle or high schools.

Our Mission

The Utah Tech University Mathematics Department seeks to help students achieve their academic, career, and life goals, including those related to basic computational skills, mathematical processes, and knowledge that develops real-life applications, modeling and problem-solving. The Department’s comprehensive and integrated offerings help students master mathematical competencies for future career and educational endeavors. These goals applied with DSU’s mission promote a campus-wide culture of learning.

Utah Tech’s mission to offer baccalaureate programs “in core or foundational areas consistent with four-year colleges” mandates that the University deliver a degree in mathematics.  This discipline is profoundly instrumental to the development of skills in quantitative reasoning, logic, analysis, and critical thinking; which are widely recognized skills at the heart of education. Our robust mathematics program is essential in preparing students in other programs such as nursing and allied health careers, business, accounting and finance, computer science, and information technology. The Math Department strives for excellence in training students in these areas vitally important to the economic health of their community. Providing this positive community impact is consistent with a key element of UT’s mission to, “foster economic growth and a continuum of educational, cultural and recreational enrichment.” (UT Mission Statement, 2013)

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Employ mathematical techniques in computational problems.
  • Students will interpret mathematical models.
  • Construct quantitative, logical arguments.
  • Students will apply mathematical knowledge to real-world problems.
  • Communicate in the mathematical language through the use of proper notation and terminology.
  • Students will explore and analyze mathematical concepts, using technology as appropriate.
