A mathematics degree gives you the ability to work around the world as engineers or actuaries. With a solid foundation in math applications and communications skills, you can serve others as a teacher or statistician. As a major, you’ll find the math degree program builds upon the basics of algebra and progresses through the rigorous study of calculus, geometry, and real analysis.

At Bluefield College, our math majors develop strong critical thinking skills that serve them outside their classes. “I enjoy watching the progression as students start to understand what the major is all about as they confront the connections between seemingly disparate areas explored within the math major,” says Dr. Lewis Buterakos. As a Bluefield student, you’ll have access to Mathematica, the world’s largest collection of algorithms for computing and visualization to support your challenging coursework. If you plan to teach, you’ll take the Praxis II exam for Math Education. We’re proud to say every Bluefield math education student has passed this exam since 2010!
