The discipline of mathematics is among the oldest members of the academy. It has a rich intellectual history encompassing both theoretical and applied work. The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to provide students with a solid understanding of, and appreciation for, both theoretical and applied work.

Our commitment to the intellectual growth of our students applies not only to students majoring in mathematics, but to all students taking courses in the department. In an increasingly technical and technological world, a solid foundation in mathematics is becoming more vital to students in all fields.
