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
