Mathematical Physics

Bachelor of Science Degree


Program Overview

The mathematic with premedicine concentration major is similar to a traditional mathematics major but places more emphasis on pre-health professional training for those students who would like to pursue a mathematics major but a health professional career.

The mathematics with premedicine concentration major is designed to provide:

  • Training in both mathematics and pre-health content
  • The background necessary for graduate work in mathematics, any health professional school, or a related discipline
Outcomes

With a degree in mathematics with a premedicine concentration, you will appreciate and understand how the Universe (all of creation) works. You will know how the fundamental forces of nature influence the world around us including being able to understand the underlying mathematical models for these forces. You will also be able to address the philosophical, naturalistic, and teleological implications of mathematics within a Christian world-view.
