Programme Overview

Our Mathematics major is designed to encourage students to think clearly and to express mathematical concepts in meaningful statements, give students necessary skills to perform operations in professional fields that require the use of mathematics, and also to create the desire, curiosity and interest to further their education in mathematics. Daystar University, in line with its vision and mission, offers a major in mathematics with four concentrations, namely, Applied Mathematics, Pure mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Statistics. These will meet the needs and aspirations of society in which the trained students will serve and lead.
