About the Program

Learn more about the Mathematics program and its concentrations.

The job market for graduates with degrees in mathematics remains strong. Siena Heights University offers bachelor’s degrees in mathematics to suit every specialty. If you are interested in teaching (at the elementary, secondary, or junior college level), applied math, statistical/actuarial science, or pre-engineering, we have the program to suit your needs and interests.

One of the features that sets the SHU Mathematics Department apart from others is our emphasis on technology for teaching and learning. In addition to "smart classrooms" that allow for state-of-the-art presentations, we emphasize modern tools for instruction and discovery in the classroom. Technology-rich classrooms, labs, and instruction engage our students and familiarize them with the wealth of technology that will confront them after graduation.

Math classes for majors are small, allowing our professors to provide all of the individual attention that our students might require. Plentiful office hours, student-centered faculty, large study areas with fully-equipped computers, and state-of-the-art Smart classrooms make learning personal, interesting, and interactive. We can get you started at whatever level suits your background, and take you on your journey right through to the degree of your choice.

Regardless of your specialty, the program will serve your needs. Students planning to be math teachers will be prepared in accordance with Michigan certification standards. Those planning to attend graduate school will receive a thorough and wide-ranging undergraduate experience. Those planning a career in engineering can attend SHU for the first two years, enjoying the benefits of small classes and receiving an associate’s degree and thorough preparation for an engineering program at a larger school

Our graduates leave SHU with superior literacy in a wide variety of math-oriented equipment and software, including Maple Computer Algebra System, TI-NSpire handheld calculators and the Minitab statistics package.
