Department of mathematics

We are committed to helping students understand mathematical theory and foster their passion for numbers and analytics.

Our rigorous and application-based curriculum prepares students for careers as engineers, actuaries, statisticians, or mathematicians. Successful graduates will be ready to advance to graduate school in mathematics, statistics, engineering, computer science, or operations research; or teach mathematics at the middle grades or secondary level.

Majors and Minors

  • Data Science Major

    Data Science is the study of how we extract meaning from data, and in a data-driven world, professionals with this expertise are in high demand. This program prepares students to process, analyze, and present data from different domains and sources, as well as develop broader skills immediately applicable to the workplace.

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”

- Joshua Fitzgerald, Class of ’19, Mathematics Major

Joshua currently studies astrodynamics at Virginia Tech University and is an Engineering Mechanics Ph.D. Candidate.
