Earn your degree in Mathematics
Houghton's Math Program
The Houghton College mathematics program challenges students in an academically rigorous environment while providing opportunities for teaching, service and research. Students pursuing a mathematics degree further their learning beyond the classroom by publishing papers or presenting talks at regional and national mathematics conferences. Opportunities for teaching and service abound as students work as teaching assistants and tutors while others serve with organizations such as Upward Bound and AmeriCorps.
Students who wish to obtain teaching certification in secondary mathematics should complete both a Mathematics major and a major in Adolescence Education.
The Christian Distinctive
Earn your degree in mathematics in the context of our strong Christian liberal arts education. Integrate your Christian faith into the classroom and learn from expert faculty committed to your academic, personal and spiritual development.
About one-third of mathematics alumni pursue careers in education-related fields at all levels, while others find careers in areas such as actuarial science, industry, finance, banking, law, computer science and business. A degree in mathematics at Houghton College can open doors to many careers!
