Gonzaga's Department of Mathematics offers bachelor degrees in Mathematics (B.S. and B.A) and Applied Mathematics (B.S.), as well as minors in both Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. Our program offers a blend of pure mathematics and its applications to business, the natural sciences, engineering, and the social sciences.
While developing your analytic skills, our classes challenge you to use your growing knowledge to analyze and advance our University's mission of serving the greater good. Our department offers many opportunities for you to pursue your passion for mathematics and enrich your understanding of its role in the world through participation in undergraduate research, conferences, community teaching, and clubs. A degree in mathematics or applied mathematics prepares you for jobs in industry, government, or education, and opens the door to graduate school.
New Program in Applied Mathematics
Do you like mathematics and want to apply it to other disciplines?
From medical imaging to weather modeling to data science (and much more), applied mathematics is on the forefront of helping solve the increasingly complex problems facing our society. Gonzaga’s Applied Mathematics Program was designed to prepare students for interdisciplinary technical jobs in high demand from employers as well as graduate school in a variety of areas.
Students opting for an Applied Mathematics major can choose optional concentrations in Computer Science, Economics, Biochemistry, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. Most Engineering majors can earn a minor in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics with just two or three extra courses; we also welcome double majors.
