The Mathematics Department at NJCU prepares students for careers in a modern, complex society that has become increasingly dependent on mathematics. NJCU math students become mathematicians, teachers, scientists, researchers, technicians, managers, business leaders and more. A mathematics education is a solid foundation for careers that require problem solving and analytical thinking.

If your interest in math intersects with a passion for teaching, our teacher certification program or Master of Math Education might be the right path for you. Our attentive faculty and advisors can help you choose a program based on your interests and career goals. A math minor is an excellent way to complement many degree programs, particularly if you are considering graduate work in a discipline that involves quantitative research.  

Mathematics Department faculty create a collaborative atmosphere where students and teachers are a community, and where learning is a lifelong enterprise.
