If you like to solve problems, get a kick out of building and interpreting models and have an eye for detail, then study mathematics with us! At AMU, you will dive into mathematics via the Catholic liberal arts tradition. Along the way you will pick up the practical and computational skills to succeed in a variety of career paths.

Many students think that majoring in mathematics will only prepare them for a teaching career. But you can do so much more! This major is an excellent way to prepare for a career in business or law. Studies show that mathematics majors consistently score higher than most other majors in entrance exams for graduate school, law school, medical school and business school.
Fast Fact: Several AMU students have participated in the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), doing mathematical research for 8-10 weeks in the summer for a stipend of about $4,000.

Several of our recent mathematics students have spent their summers participating in Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) programs. This is an opportunity to do mathematical research at another university for 8-10 weeks in the summer and be paid a stipend of about $4000.
Even though many mathematics majors do go on to rewarding careers in teaching at the primary, secondary, and collegiate levels, many more go on to careers outside of academics. In fact, according to a National Science Foundation survey of recent college graduates, more than half of mathematics majors go on to careers in business, industry, and government.
