Problem solving, critical thinking and the ability to interpret complex data. These are fundamental skills in any career – and in our daily lives. When you study mathematics, you’ll develop a strong foundation in these valuable skills, opening the door to a wide variety of career paths.

In the UNI Department of Mathematics, we have a long and rich history in mathematics education, a nationally-acclaimed actuarial science program and supportive professors who put students first.

Wherever your degree takes you – whether it’s teaching in a classroom or working for a Fortune 500 company – you’ll leave campus ready to make your mark on the world.

Get Involved, Make an Impact

Student Organizations

Joining a student-led organization is a great way to get involved. You’ll meet people who share the same interests – building lifelong friendships – while gaining professional experience, and honing your leadership skills. Our department is home to four clubs, including: Math Club, TEAM, Actuarial Science Club and Kappa Mu Epsilon math honor society.

Through unique undergraduate research experiences, our students have the chance to take their learning beyond the classroom – solving real-world problems. Working side-by-side with professors, you’ll develop practical skills that set you apart from the crowd, and have the chance to publish your work for the world to see.
