The Department of Mathematics offers both a major and a minor in mathematics. The mathematics program is designed to prepare students for positions in business and industry, for graduate work in mathematics, statistics and operations research, for professional programs and for teaching mathematics.

The Mathematics Department cultivates a close relationship with students using many tools including numerous office hours, attending professional conferences with students, and by hosting two social events: the Donut and Puzzle Party in the fall and a picnic in the spring.
