Whether they work in business or private research, computers or
government, mathematicians use their knowledge and skills to find
practical solutions to real-world problems.
Mathematicians find employment in almost every sector of today’s
They teach, assess financial risk, measure and interpret data and
find ways to transform natural resources. Their work also is vital
to ensuring the safety of computer systems and even helping to
sustain the environment. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics predicts that jobs for mathematicians will rise 16
percent over the next eight years.
You can prepare for these opportunities by earning your
undergraduate degree in Mathematics at St. John’s University. The
Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers two
126-credit programs in the field:
Each provides students with a strong foundation in theory
balanced with applied mathematics and computer science. Both
programs are available at the University’s residential campuses in
Queens and Staten Island, NY.
Students also may pursue a
Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. Available at
the Staten Island campus, the 126-credit program combines theory
with a practical, in-depth knowledge of computer languages, systems
In addition, the Department offers minors in Applied Statistics,
Computer Science, Information Sciences.
