The Department of Mathematics offers academically challenging programs along with the personal attention and instruction to help help students succeed. Faculty understand the power and the promise of mathematics, and they strive to instill that same sense of awe and enthusiasm in their students. We are living today in what some consider the golden age of mathematics, as the pace of advancements in math parallels the explosive growth in other sciences. Using data, statistics, modeling and analytics, it’s possible to unlock many of life’s secrets and solve real-word problems.

Faculty provide a context for the “numbers” by teaching the relationships between math and other disciplines, such as history, philosophy and music. Courses focus on class participation and challenge students to think creatively while developing strong critical-thinking and analytical skills.

Mathematics is one of western civilizations’ oldest and richest disciplines, and mathematics literacy and competence is an essential skill to have in a global society. The B.S. in mathematics provides a solid foundation for a variety of careers in business, science and related fields. Students interested in a high school teaching career may pursue secondary mathematics teaching lcensure through this program.

 

The Department of Mathematics offers courses with the following designator: MAT (mathematics). See full Course Descriptions .
