Mathematics is the primary language of science, which makes it essential for understanding through a biblical lens to better reveal God’s calculated creation. 数学系 equips students with both a conceptual and quantitative understanding that will enable them to thrive in their chosen vocation and flourish in an increasingly number-driven society.
Our department prepares students for service in God's Kingdom through rigorous study of the many branches of mathematics, including calculus, differential equations, linear and abstract algebra, real analysis, probability, and geometry. 我们挑战学生 to relate course content to their faith to understand how our convictions inform our 对数学的认知和实践.
We emphasize communication and community by encouraging students to work together as peers in presentations and writing assignments; this ensures our students develop the ability to communicate about math both in spoken and written form. Additionally, we serve students in scientific fields such as pre-engineering, physics, chemistry, and biology by providing them with a thorough understanding of foundational concepts.
数学专业的学生也很抢手! The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of mathematicians and statisticians will grow 31% from 2021 to 2031. Lastly, they are well-paid for their skills—the median wage for mathematicians as of May 2021 was $108,100.
There are various jobs that require a strong background in math, such as data scientist/analyst, actuary, financial or investment banking analyst, operations researcher, software engineer, statistician, and accountant, to name a few. 还有政府机构， such as the NSA, that look specifically for math majors, and several math department graduates have acquired internships with national laboratories.
