Description | "The future for mathematicians is bright. The demand for this special skill has been created by the desire to maximize computer efficiency; a shortage of science teachers; a need for actuarial specialists who can master the growing complexity of the insurance industry; and the pressure for fast and accurate decision-making processes in a competitive international market. As a Mathematics major at Penn State Behrend, you'll choose to study one of five options to earn a Bachelor of Science degree: *In the General Mathematics Option, you'll pursue coursework in preparation for graduate study in math or statistics. The option is flexible enough so you also can use it to pursue a secondary interest in another discipline, usually as a minor. *The Applied Mathematics Option focuses on mathematical analysis, modeling, and problem solving. This option is a good choice if you plan to apply your mathematics skills within another scientific area such as physics, chemistry, biology, or psychology. *Using the Business Option, you'll receive a strong background in statistics, computer programming, and systems management. *The Mathematics Education Option is designed for students want to pursue careers as mathematics teachers in secondary schools. This Option provides both a strong foundation in mathematics content and hands-on experience in the classroom to teach Secondary Mathematics Education. *The Education Pre-Certification Option is designed for students who want pursue a career in mathematics education.
