Type of Degree: Major, Minor
Department:  Mathematics and Physics Department

Study logic, theory, and problem solving to prepare yourself for a dynamic career in mathematics. Embrace the challenge and fuel your love of numbers and order.

Explore the beauty and order of mathematics. Heidelberg teaches both pure and applied math, allowing you to be competitive in the workforce, design your own education, and easily add a second major. You’ll study the well-known subjects of algebra and calculus, but also discover new courses like quantitative reasoning and complex analysis.


3-2 Engineering Agreement

Heidelberg has a partnership with Case Western University that allows you to begin your education in the personalized atmosphere of Heidelberg before moving to a large engineering program. You’ll spend three years at Heidelberg and earn a math degree and then spend two years at Case Western in their engineering program to graduate with a second, engineering degree.

Nathan Resendez ‘03

Following graduation, Nathan entered the Air Force Officer Training Program. He graduated with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant with the specialty code analytical scientist and was stationed in Texas as a laser safety officer. In 2008 Nathan was promoted to the rank of Captain and stationed at Wright Patterson Airforce Base in Ohio. He worked as a flight commander for the Foreign Materiel Exploitation Flight in the National Air and Space Center (NASIC). As a commander he was leading over 50 military and civilian employees. In March 2013, Nathan completed his Masters of Science in Operations Research (a type of applied math) with an emphasis in Deterministic Operations Research, Information Operations and Operational Modeling. He now works for the Pentagon in Personnel at Air Force Headquarters.

You will not always be working on the bench in the lab. In order to be a successful supervisor, you must have a solid knowledge of science and math in order to help the people you supervise perform their jobs successfully. Heidelberg provided me with that knowledge and that has helped me become successful in my career as an Air Force scientist and officer.
