The math program at LMU is designed to provide students with a thorough knowledge of math’s essential fields such as number theory, set theory, logic, algebra, and analysis. Graduates will explore various realms of mathematics with a variety of core course work along with courses in Differential Equations or the History of Math, depending on one’s track. In the math department, our small student to faculty ratio affords more individualized attention. A degree in math can lead to many professional programs and career opportunities. Graduates may obtain jobs in the fields of actuarial training, banking, computer science, cryptology, engineering, numerical analysis, management sciences, quality control, operations research, and statistics.

Degree Programs 

  •  Career Opportunities

    Mathematics has the unique distinction of being applied to virtually every endeavor. Moreover, many employers seek math graduates whom they trust to learn by reasoning over a person trained to perform particular tasks. Consequently, a degree in mathematics can lead to a career in any industry, especially those that employ scientific methods. Professional employment possibilities for math majors include actuarial training, aerospace, banking, computer science, cryptology, engineering, government, management science, numerical analysis, pharmaceuticals, quality control, operations research, and statistics. Admission into most graduate and professional programs, regardless of discipline, depend on demonstration of mathematical ability beyond general studies requirements and even undergraduate degrees in the sciences, especially chemistry, rely on mathematical skills that coincide with the requirements for a mathematics minor.
