Schools and businesses seek after our graduates because they are familiar with the rigorous standards of our program. By completing a mathematics degree at Liberty, you will be prepared to enter a career field that is both exciting and fulfilling.

We are a teaching university. This means our professors, who are in the classroom with you every week, are highly trained and have years of experience working with mathematics and in related fields. They desire to mentor and support you while you pursue your mathematics degree.

What Will You Learn in Our Mathematics Degree?

You can be well-equipped to pursue a career field related to mathematics after completing our bachelor’s degree. Our mathematics bachelor’s degree combines training in pure (theory and abstract) mathematics and applied (practical application) mathematics. Some of the foundational courses you’ll study include computer sciences, programming, technical communication, and physics. This allows you to have the foundation you need to succeed in your upper-level math courses as well as diversifying your skill set.

As you progress in your degree, you will study courses like calculus, geometry, statistics, linear algebra, and real analysis. In addition to these foundational courses, you have the option of choosing elective courses that best fit your individual interests and passions.
