Theories and formulas are only part of the equation; to fully understand math, it must be applied to life. Trinity math majors have completed summer research projects evaluating cost-effective vaccines and been hired for jobs at companies such as Abbott, Allstate, Baxter, and Trustmark.
Trinity is located in a peaceful wooded setting, just 25 miles north of downtown Chicago. This prime location offers some of the nation’s best school districts, a variety of ministry organizations, and 12 Fortune 500 companies within 12 miles of campus to apply practically what you are learning in the classroom. In addition, Trinity is close to many coffee shops, restaurants, cultural experiences, and recreational activities when you need a break from the books!
Most Mathematics majors are able to finish their degree in 3-4 years. Mathematics requires 45 hours.
Mathematics graduates from Trinity have gone on to work at the national headquarters of Allstate, Walgreens, Trustmark Insurance, and the National Security Agency.
The Mathematics major is designed to equip you with quantitative and analytical problem-solving skills. This major is ideal if you are considering graduate study in pure or applied mathematics or if you are interested in a career in business, actuarial science, or related scientific and technological fields.
At Trinity, you’ll be equipped to think critically and biblically in every area of life as you are challenged to apply your faith to your coursework and classroom conversations. And instead of approaching general education as a checklist of courses to be completed, Trinity’s distinctive educational approach gives you the freedom to choose courses that are most interesting and relevant to you. Working closely with your faculty advisor, you can select from electives to enhance your major, apply toward a minor, create a double major, or simply experience something new. The choices are yours! All along the way, you’ll be cared for and supported, ensuring that you make the most of your college experience.
