The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers. Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.
The BS in Mathematics: 4+1 MS in Mathematics is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:
- Expertise in mathematical analysis and problem solving that is applicable in a wide variety of industry-related positions.
- Expertise in mathematical writing.
- Experience in multiple phases of course preparation and teaching of mathematics at the freshman level.
- Preparation for further study at the doctoral level in mathematics and closely related areas.
- Proficiency in a variety of scientific computing environments and programming languages.
