Use Math and Science to Solve Problems with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computational Mathematics

How do we create a robotic arm that can manipulate one piece of equipment so precisely that it can be trusted to work in the International Space Station? How might a disease spread in populated areas in the event of a biological attack? Is it possible to measure sentiment change by analyzing social media, likes, shares, and comments? Problems like these and many more are just part of what someone with a degree in computational mathematics might study.

Gain a deeper mathematical knowledge and further develop skills needed for endless career opportunities by pursuing a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computational Mathematics from Liberty University. Through this degree, you can be better equipped with the skills necessary for careers in data analytics, finance, government, business, and technology contexts. We also have various specializations that can better prepare you for future employment.

So what are you waiting for? You want a lucrative career, and you need a valuable skill set to get you there. Pursuing our computational mathematics degree means gaining the knowledge and tools needed to work in the diverse areas of math and science.

Why Choose Liberty’s Computational Mathematics Degree?

When pursuing your degree at Liberty University, you can study with confidence. Liberty is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC), so you can rest assured that you are receiving a world-class education.

With a degree in computational mathematics, you will be setting yourself up for success in medical, scientific, pharmaceutical, industrial research, and epidemiology settings. What’s more, fields related to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are projected to have a much faster job growth than non-STEM jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.* Earning an applied math degree from Liberty can help set you apart from the competition as you pursue a STEM career.

One of the things we love about our computational math program is our professors. These individuals are professionals in their field who have real-life experience and related graduate- and doctoral-level degrees.
