Mathematics is an intriguing field that helps us understand the world by modeling physical phenomena quantitatively and employing sound reasoning skills. A degree in mathematics offers students many options, including careers in business, government, industry, and teaching. Some students also pursue post-graduate education in mathematics, medicine, law, and science. Students studying mathematics at Nebraska Wesleyan University have opportunities to engage themselves fully in their education by working collaboratively with their peers, conducting research with faculty, teaching in the Math Tutoring Center, grading for courses, attending Math Club events, and presenting research at conferences.
