Undergraduate Programs

Our Programs

We offer an integrated array of courses, degree programs and activities for undergraduates. We welcome motivated students to join with us to develop your talents and prepare for your careers. We offer something for every NIU student:

Students begin their mathematics courses at NIU with a wide variety of backgrounds. Some students enter NIU with Advanced Placement credit, others need refresher or transition courses, many are transfer students, and many are also pursuing majors or minors in other departments. Our goal is to assist each student to develop their mathematical talents to the fullest.

Because each topic within mathematics builds up from a solid base of understanding, it is necessary to begin with an appropriate course early in your college career. Please contact an advisor at NIU as early in your college planning as is possible so that you can make the most of your mathematics coursework. 

We're proud of our teaching, research and service to the university, the northern Illinois region, and the world. Come be a part of our community!
