A student completing the Mathematics major should be able to attend graduate school or receive employment in such areas as mathematics, computing, engineering, business, economics, statistics, cartography, the physical sciences, and other fields requiring strong quantitative skills. The Mathematics major is designed also to prepare the student to teach the Mathematics courses commonly offered in middle and secondary schools. All majors are required to pass a Mathematics Department assessment examination. Mathematics courses numbered below 105 are not credited for the major. A maximum of three hours in internship may count toward the major.

The mathematics major is designed to prepare students to work in areas which require critical thinking skills and the ability to work with mathematical concepts. Students who complete a mathematics major at CMU are prepared to enter the job force in jobs requiring mathematical expertise and critical thinking skills, to attend graduate school in mathematics, statistics and/or engineering, and to teach mathematics in the middle and secondary grades.

Demonstrate Proficiency in Mathematics

Students who are proficient in undergraduate mathematics should be able to:

- think quantitatively
- problem solve
- communicate mathematically
- make connections among the various branches of mathematics and to areas outside of mathematics
- apply their knowledge to real world applications

Communicate Mathematical Concepts

- Students majoring in mathematics should be able to communicate,through writing and oral communication, their understanding of mathematical concepts and functions.

Application of Mathematical Knowledge

- Students majoring in mathematics will be able to apply their knowledge practically, using critical thinking skills and methods.
