Mathematics back to programs
Be a problem-solver.
You use math when you analyze sports stats, track the spread of an epidemic, or think about the Trinity. It’s a universal subject that pairs well with other fields like chemistry, business, and philosophy. As a Mathematics major at Trinity you’ll get personalized attention as you learn quantitative problem-solving skills, logical thought processes, and how to apply these concepts to everyday life. If you want to pursue a career in insurance, business, actuarial science, or even teaching, math is a great place to start.
