UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS
Dr. Joseph W. Francis, Chairperson
Due to the ever-increasing influence of technology,
the study of mathematics is crucial not only for
logical thinking, but also for the preparation for any
technical vocation. In addition, mathematics is a
vital part of any well-rounded liberal arts education.
The mathematics curriculum is designed to provide
a strong foundational core for the student interested
in pursuing graduate study and to offer students the
opportunity for preparation in fields relating to applied
mathematics, such as statistics and engineering. The
Department of Mathematics provides a strong and
thorough offering in mathematics as a part of God’s
creation in a concentrated effort to integrate faith
and learning. A minor in mathematics is available
to students from all other departments and can be
pursued in conjunction with every other major on
campus.
