Montana Tech Math Club students work on a project.
Students participate in Math Bowl 2013.
The Montana Tech Mathematics Department prepares students for in-demand, high-paying careers.
The continuing rise in computer automation requires professionals with training in mathematics and data analysis, and students emerge from our campus fully prepared to excel in these fields. Offering a major, minor and teaching certificate, Montana Tech prepares students for graduate school or careers in the private sector, medicine, law, education or government.
Our undergraduate curriculum features both pure and applied mathematics. Our teaching certificates in secondary mathematics are offered in a dual program with the University of Montana Western.
Students receive individual attention and work closely with faculty. They also have many opportunities to travel to national and international conferences and serve on state and national committees. Our students are consistently nominated for Rhodes and Goldwater Scholarships, and graduates like 2014 University of Iowa Chancellor’s Medallion recipient Joseph E. Cavanaugh are examples of our students’ success.
Our degree program has received full accreditation with no deficiencies for three decades and our faculty members are committed to excellence in research and ensuring student success.
The Faculty Members in the Mathematical Sciences Department of the University of Montana stand united for the ideals of diversity, acceptance, and inclusion at our university. We welcome all students to learn to the best of their abilities on our campus in an environment free from racism, sexism, bigotry, harassment, and oppression. We uphold these ideals ourselves, and strongly encourage our colleagues across the university both to uphold these ideals, and to teach them when appropriate to our students as a way to move human society forward.
