In addition to a robust foundation in mathematics, in this program you’ll gain vital skills in oral and written communication, teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving. Learn to communicate mathematical statements and proofs precisely and logically! You’ll also gain the ability to translate and represent real-world problems in mathematical language and notation.

Mathematics students are involved in many activities outside the classroom such as serving as mentors and tutors to students in introductory courses. The Ladies FIRST (Fierce in Research, Science, and Technology) club is an organization for students pursuing majors in math or science or in applications of these areas. The goal of Ladies FIRST is to bring together students who are excited by all aspects of the STEM disciplines, to expose students to available career opportunities, and to inform students about summer programs, internships, and graduate programs. The club sponsors talks with professional mathematicians and scientists employed in a variety of academic and nonacademic settings.

In addition to the mathematics major and minor, students interested in further studies in the area of statistics may pursue an individualized minor in applied statistics in consultation with the program chair.

The mathematics faculty is supported by a dedicated team of Instructional Specialists.
