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 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.

The Mathematics major at St. Francis College work in:
  • business,
  • government,
  • industry,
  • teaching,
  • and research.
Other go on to graduate studies in mathematics and related sciences, or become:
  • teachers,
  • software engineers,
  • financial engineers,
  • financial planners,
  • appraisers,
  • technical writers,
  • systems engineers,
  • data analysts,
  • and much more.

About the department

Mission

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.

The Mathematics major and minor prepare students for careers in business, government, industry, teaching, and research. The rapid advances of science and technology have multiplied the domains in which mathematics is a prerequisite for a variety of applications in modern technologies. In today’s technology-oriented climate, the department’s graduates have new opportunities for employment and professional advancement.

  • Introduce students to the fundamental areas of mathematics and train students in the analytical thinking characteristics of pure and applied mathematics.
  • Teach students abstract mathematical reasoning and provide familiarity with rigorous methods of mathematical proof.
  • Prepare mathematics majors for the competitive world of graduate studies in mathematics and related sciences.
