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. Entry-level mathematics courses introduce students to basic concepts and tools that are essential to education. Upper-level 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.

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.
