about the program
As a math major at MNU, you’ll master concepts in subjects such as calculus, statistics, abstract algebra, differential equations, computer programming and math-related technology. You’ll learn to make connections within different math fields, and also connect math to other disciplines.

It’s not uncommon for professors to spend significant one-on-one time with you outside the classroom—ensuring that you master the material. This supportive and collaborative environment gives you the ability to excel.


Department scholarship opportunities are available to mathematics students. The John Stephens Memorial Scholarship and Mathematics Scholarship are awarded to sophomores, juniors and seniors, based on performance in mathematics courses and financial need.

Mathematic majors will be provided a new iPad to increase their learning experience.

Advance Degree Opportunity

The MNU & Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science Cooperative Program gives MNU students an accelerated pathway to obtain dual bachelor’s degrees from MNU and from Washington University.  Students choose to spend 3 years at MNU and then transfer to Washington University for 2 years to earn a bachelor's degree or for 3 years to get a bachelor’s and master’s degree in engineering.  While studying at MNU, students also have time to pursue athletics, music, and other extracurricular activities.  At Washington University, students have access to a top ranked engineering school with a wide variety of engineering specializations.

I believe that exploring Creation through mathematical modeling gives us a better understanding of God, our Creator. God reveals His beauty and character in many ways, and mathematics is one of those ways.
