The science of mathematics is fundamental to many disciplines and an integral part of a liberal arts education. Quantitative skills such as data analysis, problem solving, pattern recognition and mathematical modeling are increasingly vital to contemporary professions. Entrylevel mathematics courses introduce students to basic concepts and tools that are essential to education. Upperlevel courses provide students with the opportunity to explore mathematical topics in greater depth.
There are four concentrations of study from which to select a Mathematics major: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Mathematics with Teacher Licensure. The requirements for each of these programs are listed within the individual programs.
Declaration of Major
Declaring a major in Mathematics requires a student to complete a Declaration of Major form that must be signed by the department chair. In addition, before declaring a major a student must satisfy the LANG 120 requirement.
Parsons Mathematics Assistance Center
The Parsons Mathematics Assistance Center is operated by professional staff to help students in their math courses. Students may drop in at any time during lab hours to obtain help on topics ranging from basic mathematics through higher level calculus. They may use the lab to work on their homework or to meet in study groups. Hours are extensive and are posted each semester.
