The Department of Mathematics is committed to providing a quality education integrated with caring and personal attention within the framework of a Christian liberal arts environment.
The program has three major objectives:
- to provide the non-specialist with some understanding of the contributions of mathematics to cultural development;
- to offer students in natural, social, and behavioral sciences the mathematics necessary for understanding their own fields of interest;
- and to prepare mathematics majors for graduate study, for teaching at the secondary level, or for work in business and industry.
Students are taught how to solve problems and see how mathematics changes the way that we look at the world. As a student progresses through the major, students learn how to do complex calculations and the theorems behind these calculations.
