    The Mathematics Department offers a broad, in-depth curriculum for exploring all aspects of mathematics – including quantities, changes, abstraction, structure and space – through small, engaging classroom settings. Within the department there is a great sense of discovery and collaboration as students and faculty are active in research, journal publication, conference presentations, mathematics competitions and many have received distinguished awards and recognition.


    is an integral part of the program and is incorporated into coursework as well as ongoing, unique research solutions outside of the classroom. In addition to collaborative research projects with faculty, students are highly active in the Math Club where they have the opportunity to discuss mathematics, solve problems and participate in social activities. A dedicated tutoring facility, great professor accessibility and the encouragement of open discussions in the classroom all contribute to a nurturing and supportive learning environment that lends a deep exploration of mathematics. Graduates are poised to excel in graduate programs and have become highly successful alumni who are skilled educators, actuaries, engineers, financial mathematicians and more.
