Professor teaching a small group of math students.


As an LVC mathematics major, you’ll benefit from learning how to think creatively, solve complex problems, and present your solutions in compelling ways, in addition to building a strong foundation in mathematic principles.

For a well-rounded education, you can double-major in other fields, like actuarial science, data science, and computer science. If you’re thinking that math education is the path for you, we offer a secondary education teacher certification. Depending on your interests, the great thing about LVC’s math degree is that it’s flexible—allowing you to double-major in any other program here, from the arts and humanities to business.

Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to succeed at whatever you do, using your outstanding technical, critical thinking, and communication skills. Need-based departmental scholarships are available.
