The concentration in pure mathematics is designed for students who are planning on pursuing graduate studies in mathematics or working in fields that require advanced mathematical techniques and ideas. The concentration includes more course work in analysis, abstract algebra and other courses which emphasize understanding the structure of modern mathematics and learning how to read and write mathematical proofs.
Students seeking licensure as a teacher of Mathematics (grades 5-8 or 8-12) must also complete a second major in Secondary Education.
