The Mathematics Department at Dominican University prepares students to pursue careers in these and other fields. The department offers two majors: mathematics or mathematics and computer science.
Students who participate in Dominican’s engineering program, a joint program with the Illinois Institute of Technology, complete the mathematics portion of their curriculum in Dominican's Mathematics Department.
Students can also minor in mathematics.
Five-year BA or BS/MBA
Mathematics majors considering an MBA degree are encouraged to pursue Dominican’s five-year BA or BS/MBA program. Students should apply before the end of their junior year. They generally need a 3.0 GPA to be accepted into the BA or BS/MBA program.
Accepted students may enroll in two MBA courses during their senior year—one course each semester—and credit will be given toward their undergraduate degree. The remaining 10 graduate business courses may be taken when students complete the undergraduate degree. This shortens the time needed to earn the MBA degree.
Because mathematics is so integral to modern society, mathematics majors often find themselves in high demand after graduation.
Graduates can work in business, including in banking, insurance, manufacturing, logistics, market research and more. Recent Dominican mathematics graduates work at outstanding organizations like:
- Abbott Laboratories
- Cook County Assessor’s Office
- Gateway Computers
- Household Finance
- Marriott Hotels
Mathematics majors who want to teach elementary or secondary school often find many job opportunities. Recent placements include:
