Undergraduate Programs

The undergraduate programs in the mathematics department introduce central ideas in a variety of areas in mathematics. Our formula for success is:

critical thinking + rigorous reasoning = enhanced problem-solving ability

The Mathematics program provides students with a variety of courses that establish a mathematician’s mentality, and upon completion of any of our programs, students are equipped for exciting careers as well as graduate study.

Mathematics, at its core, exists as a means to reveal and explain patterns, whether the pattern appears as electrical impulses in an animal’s nervous system, as fluctuations in stock market prices, or as fine detail of an abstract geometric figure. Studying mathematics leads to a variety of exciting professional careers in research, engineering, programming, business, government services, or as teachers at all levels. A Minor in Mathematics is available, a great addition to almost any other major.
