The Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics is a comprehensive program with curricular structures comprised of a fixed math-class.jpgcore of courses for disciplinary depth and program elective courses for latitude within the program. The course work and experiences are designed to prepare students to: (1) enter the workforce in a mathematics-related position; (2) enter graduate programs in a mathematical science or quantitative field; or (3) teach secondary mathematics content (assuming students jointly enter the Secondary Education program.)

Program Distinctions

The Mathematics Program at Lindsey Wilson College is receptive to individual students' needs.  We work closely with our majors to aid them in getting the most out of their education.  Past students have participated in independent studies in Analysis, Operations Research, Actuarial Studies and Educational Applets.  Other students have used internship opportunities to better understand how mathematics fits into industry.

serena-bradbury.jpg"Although people don't usually associate Mathematics with the law, I have found that it has enabled me to enhance skills such as logical reasoning and problem solving, both of which are assests in the legal profession.  Lindsey Wilson's Mathematics faculty will help you understand not only how to do something but explain the importance and ways in which it applies in life.  I knew that Mathematics and Lindsey Wilson would challenge me and help me grow as an educated individual."  Serena Bradbury, Class of 2008.

"The classes at Lindsey wilson were rigorous, personal and tailored to my abilities.  The professors were accessible and willing to help.  All of our coursework was applicable and sought understanding.  These are all characteristics of how I want to manage my classroom - a classroom tailored around the needs of each class."  Dan Corely, Class of 2005.

Why choose Mathematics?

A degree in mathematics may lead toward graduate study in the mathematical sciences, such as pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, operations research, or actuarial science.  It could also add a highly desirable analytical component for students to combine with other disciplines including business, econometrics, computer science, packaging, engineering, agriculture, forestry and biometrics; or with professional programs in medicine, denistry, law and pharmacy.  Other students may also complete work in the education program to achieve certification to teach mathemaics at the elementary school, middle school or high school level.
