Mathematics: Major & Minor


At Southern Virginia University mathematics is a major that helps develop each student’s abstract reasoning capabilities regardless of his field of study. The diversity of topics and versatility of knowledge gained in the liberal arts environment will enable students to develop problem solving skills necessary to be successful in many other aspects of their education, including psychology, biology and chemistry. Many students in these areas are already taking math classes that are either required for or related to their major programs and may only need to add a few additional math courses to obtain a mathematics minor.

As society becomes more technologically based, mathematics will become more important in an ever-increasing number of fields. If you want more specific information, you should consult with an advisor in the mathematics department.
