The Numbers Add Up, Mathematics Provides a Strong Foundation

Numerical calculations. Problem-solving. Logic. Analysis. Synthesis. Mathematical reasoning. Quantitative patterns. These skills are increasingly essential in the rapidly-growing fields of science and technology.

Mathematics belongs both to the sciences and to the liberal arts. Not only is it the language of science, but it is also studied for its own beauty. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality.

The department of Mathematics offers a wide spectrum of mathematics courses ranging from first-year courses to upper-level advanced courses that cover the full undergraduate curriculum in mathematics, leading to a B.S. in Mathematics. The challenging B.S. degree program is excellent preparation for graduate study at any university.

Mathematics is also the perfect minor for management, information technology economics, and fields such as biology, physics, and chemistry. Courses are also available for prospective teachers majoring in Mathematics Education (both Adolescence and Childhood Education).

Our professors help students build a strong foundation of analytical thinking that can be transferred to any career.
