Mathematics

Program Information

Professors: Barth, Gandini, Intermont, Nguyen, Nordmoe (Chair), Oloo

The mission of the Mathematics Program is to foster in all our students critical habits of mind: description, analysis and interpretation. The Program is designed to prepare its majors for successful lifetime engagement with mathematics whether it be through applied work in industry or government; research in mathematics, statistics, or one of the other mathematical sciences; teaching; or applying mathematics in the physical, computing, or social sciences. For non-majors, the Program builds substantive skills in quantitative and abstract reasoning and in their application to the study of modern society.
