It all adds up.
Boasting a sophisticated curriculum and direct faculty contact, our majors create outstanding real-world problem-solvers who excel in graduate programs, professional study in law or medicine, or high-paying careers in government, industry, and teaching.
A well-rounded experience.
I am so grateful for all the things I learned at Butler.
“I now have the opportunity to use so many skills that I gained as an undergrad. Not just mathematical skills, but also soft skills like the ability to read, write, and speak about applied mathematics. I really am pretty lucky in that way.” —Abigale Wynn ’19
