Mathematics is a group of sciences that are used to find quantity, space, dimension, shape and their relationships. Mathematicians use geometry, algebra, and calculus to solve problems or to study scientific methods. Mathematics is also an essential tool used in other professions; such as physical sciences, biology, computer sciences, and engineering. Colorado Mesa University
offers a B.S. in mathematics with either a Mathematics or Statistics concentration.

Colorado Mesa University’s Mathematics program has class sizes that are tailored for student success.
Class sizes are small, encouraging student and teacher interaction and allowing for individual attention
from professors when needed. Students in the Mathematics program have options to work with faculty
on research programs. In additions, students work on interdisciplinary projects involving computer
science, statistics, biology, environmental science or any of the physical sciences. These opportunities
provide students with a bridge that makes the transition from course work to a career easier.
Mathematics students at Colorado Mesa University also have access to the Mathematics Club,
Mathematical Association of America (MAA), and Kappa Mu Epsilon (Mathematics Honor Society). See
the CMU Clubs page for more information.
