Come Discover How Magical Mathematics Can Be


The Department of Mathematics recognizes both the inherent beauty in the discipline and the many areas of practical application of mathematics. Our faculty are active researchers and are fully invested in our students. We have several exciting programs and centers including: the Mathematics Resource Center (MaRC), which provides placement advising, testing and free tutoring, and the Center for Applied Mathematics (CAM), which provides the opportunity for meaningful undergraduate research and uses mathematics to solve real-world problems for business, industry and government. We offer several majors: B.S. in Actuarial Science, and a B.A. in Mathematics with specialties in Pure Mathematics, Mathematics Education, Statistics, or Applied Mathematics.
