Many area schools employ graduates of our Mathematics teacher certification program.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of mathematicians is expected to increase by 16 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Advancements in technology that allow for better collection and processing of data will lead to an expanding need for mathematicians to analyze the data.

Mathematics majors that can apply theory to real-world problems, and possess good communication, teamwork, and computer skills, will have a distinct advantage in the job market. A mathematics degree from the University of St. Francis is designed to provide that advantage.
