Butler’s Mathematics major follows the Committee for Undergraduate Program in Mathematics guidelines—one of the few undergraduate programs to do so. The Department of Mathematical Sciences provides students with a close-knit departmental body, collaborative research, and opportunities to travel to conferences and problem-solving competitions. Boasting a sophisticated curriculum and direct faculty contact, our Mathematics major creates outstanding real-world problem solvers who excel in graduate programs, professional study in law or medicine, or high-paying careers in government, industry, and teaching.

Sample courses in this program include:

  • MA205, Discrete Mathematics
  • MA215, Linear Algebra
  • MA330, Complex Analysis
  • MA125, Business Calculus
  • MA301, History of Mathematics
  • MA337, Applied Dynamics and Stability Theory

Please visit the Butler University Bulletin for more course information.

The Mathematics major can be completed in a total of three years if students bring in at least eight credits from high school. Students must also plan to take courses during both summer terms. More information can be found here.
