Program Overview

Mathematics is more than numbers and formulas; it’s the art of solving problems, analyzing patterns and preparing for any and all possibilities. Every career involves mathematics on some level, but experts are few and far between. Ashland University’s Mathematics program is designed to make you one of those experts. You can expand on theory, develop mathematical models and perform analysis, preparing you for a rewarding career in several different fields or continued education.
