The mathematics program is designed to give the undergraduate a broad background in modern mathematics and its applications. The upper-division mathematics courses represent a core leading to further work in mathematics or mathematically related areas or careers in mathematics education. Applications and mathematical models may be pursued in areas such as systems theory, statistics, and geometry. These are widely used in computer science, business, and the physical, life, and social sciences.
The concentration in Mathematics is designed to give students a broad background in modern mathematics and its applications, preparing students for successful careers in areas requiring a strong foundation in mathematics, or for success at the graduate level, either in mathematics or a related discipline. Additionally, this program, deeply rooted in the liberal arts tradition brought forth by the studies in Humanities, is designed to produce well-rounded graduates, having the ability to bridge technical skills with communication skills as well as ethical discourses and analysis.
This program also supports the Secondary Education – Mathematics and Middle Education – Mathematics degrees, as well as attract students with an interest within the field of pure and/or applied mathematics.
