At SNU you will be prepared to put your mathematical problem solving to use because of our unique approach to your learning. In addition to a standard range of mathematics courses, you will take three one-hour capstone courses designed to develop a strong set of mathematical skills that are anything but standard. In Junior Colloquium, you will learn to read, report and orally present on math books and journal articles. An experience that will develop your understanding of math skills as well as sharpen your ability to communicate the math you have read. Senior Seminar is a semester-long comprehensive problem solving “exam” where you will face all the math you have studied during your 4 years at SNU. While solving a large set of math problems, you will recall, review and integrate concepts and problem-solving techniques from all of your university-level mathematics courses. The final capstone course, Senior Research in Math, involves a  one-on-one research project directed by one of the math faculty. You will be guided on your first real journey of creating “new” mathematics.

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

  • Includes a broad range of mathematical internships to fit individual student interests
  • Is the only private university in Oklahoma that is part of the NASA-Oklahoma Space Grant Consortium, giving students the opportunity to visit NASA facilities around the country and even join internships with NASA

No one will prepare you for life after graduation like SNU. Considering going the graduate school route? 100% of SNU grads who applied for graduate school in mathematics were not only accepted—they were offered to teach assistantships that paid ALL tuition and fees. And provided a living allowance. Or maybe you would like to teach at the secondary level? 100% of our graduates desiring to teach passed all certification exams and were offered full-time positions for the first year following graduation. For 22 straight years. Try to find another university with that record. Maybe you have plans to get a career right after graduation. SNU mathematics graduates get great jobs using their knowledge of mathematics.

When you graduate with your degree in mathematics from SNU, you’ll have the preparation you need for a successful career in many professions such as:

  • Actuary
  • Quantitative Analyst
  • Data Scientist
  • Financial Planner
  • Investment Analyst
  • Statistician
  • Operations Research Analyst
  • Cryptographer
  • Mathematician
  • Economist
  • Research interests in abstract algebra, combinatorics, linear algebra, and game theory
  • Faculty research mentors in the SNU Summer Research Experience
  • Include a professor who served as chair of an invited lecture committee for the Oklahoma-Arkansas Section of the Mathematical Association of America
  • Include a professor who was selected as a Mathematical Association of America Project NExT Fellow

SNU offers you the opportunity to study with credentialed faculty as you journey toward graduation, another step closer to reaching your goals. These scholars with a Christian worldview will mentor and guide you along the way.  SNU’s smaller size allows students to interact with faculty — not only in the classroom, but also through impactful mentoring, personal advising, and meaningful research. Come and be known; come and belong.
