Solve real-world problems

Being a mathematician or statistician isn't just about solving equations, it's about solving real-world problems in education, engineering, financial services, healthcare and other industries.

A degree in mathematics can lead to a job as an actuarial scientist or research analyst, while a post-graduate degree can lead to a career as a mathematician, statistician, or secondary education teacher.

Harper’s Mathematics program includes courses in different areas to expose you to the possibilities within the industry. By completing courses in calculus, physical and life science, behavioral science and physics, you will be prepared to transfer to a four-year institution to complete your bachelor's degree in mathematics or actuarial science.
