Mission of the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics

The mission of the undergraduate program in Mathematics is to provide students with a broad understanding of mathematics encompassing logical reasoning, generalization, abstraction, and formal proof. Courses in the program teach students to create, analyze, and interpret mathematical models and to communicate sound arguments based on mathematical reasoning and careful data analysis. The mathematics degree prepares students for careers in the corporate sector, tech industry, government agencies, and for graduate programs in mathematics.

Introductory and Undergraduate Courses

The department offers a year-long sequence in single-variable calculus: MATH 19, MATH 20, and MATH 21. The department also offers three options for studying multivariable mathematics. See here for more information on the introductory math courses.
