Marian University
Mathematics Program
Students in the mathematics program at Marian University can earn a degree with one of two different concentrations.  Depending on the student's long-term goals, students can elect to pursue either a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science degree.  We are now in the process of revising and modernizing our mathematics programs.  Specifically, we are working to add several courses that will allow our mathematics students to learn modern computer programming skills and how to apply those skills in mathematics settings.  A graduate with this combination of skills will have an enormous number of attractive career options.   
Mathematics Placement Test
All students who have scored less than 500 on the SAT or less than 19 on the ACT are required to take the mathematics placement test. The results of the test are used to place students in the appropriate mathematics courses.
