Mathematics majors are prepared for the teaching profession, the business world, or graduate school.
The Department of Mathematics at Cardinal Stritch University offers programs in Mathematics that are designed to reflect the most current developments within the disciplines and to prepare students for a wide variety of careers. In most of our courses, students are expected to make use of computers, calculators, and other modern technologies to explore and experiment with important ideas and to develop a deep understanding of underlying concepts and problem-solving strategies. Teamwork, particularly in larger problem-solving experiences, is required in most of our courses. Students are encouraged to participate in internship opportunities and pre-professional activities.
Mathematics majors are prepared for the teaching profession, the business world, or graduate school. The department offers a strong minor in mathematics, which may be combined with College of Education and Leadership and Department of Public Instruction requirements for teacher certification at the Early Childhood/Middle Childhood (grades Pre-K–6) and/or Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence (grades 1–8) levels. These certification programs are approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The Mathematics major is required for students seeking teacher certification in Mathematics at the Early Adolescence/Adolescence (grades 6–12) level.
The department also offers a strong minor in mathematics that serves as a good balance to a variety of majors. The Mathematics minor prepares one for a lifetime of learning and exploration. The minor in mathematics is designed to enable a student with a significant interest in mathematics to deepen his/her knowledge while pursuing a concentration in another field such as the Natural Sciences, Education, Computer Science, Accounting, etc.
