In Rivier's math program, you'll develop problem-solving, reasoning and statistical skills. You'll learn to communicate effectively so you can present research results, work on projects with non-mathematicians, or teach mathematics. As technology advances, the demand for workers with a strong foundation in mathematics increases. You'll be prepared to use mathematics to help a business, government agency, or individual solve problems, optimize production, increase profits, or become more efficient.
Facilities and resources
Rivier's programs emphasize the skills that will help you succeed in your chosen career. Capstone projects and minors allow you to integrate your mathematical studies with a second area of interest. Combine math with biology courses to prepare for biomedical research. Take business courses to prepare for jobs in economics, securities, finance, statistics, and operations research. Psychology classes prepare you for quantitative research, educational testing, or cognitive studies.
All classes are small and taught by professors, not graduate assistants. You'll get personal attention in a small department.
Jobs and internships
You'll complete a research project and/or an internship that will showcase your talents and strengthen your resume. Rivier's location in the Manchester-Boston technology corridor means you'll have plenty of internship sites from which to choose.
