如果数学是你的爱好, major in mathematics at WLC, where you’ll learn to work with abstract concepts and relationships, 识别模式, 分析复杂性, and to communicate your ideas in appropriate professional forms.

Our mathematics courses stress conceptual understanding of the development of mathematical thinking and will take you far beyond mere numerical computation.

As an application tool, mathematics uncovers the structures and relationships that help us understand the nature and problems of the world around us. 数学 expresses its concepts in symbols and graphic representations within a framework of logical inference that serves as the universal language for communicating technical knowledge.

A major in mathematics is one of the finest courses of study for developing ability in analytical thinking. Combined with an appropriate concentration of application courses, a major in mathematics prepares you for a wide range of career and educational opportunities.

As an academic discipline, mathematics shapes and sharpens the rational capabilities of the mind. It is a mode of thinking that empowers us to absorb new ideas, 适应快速变化, 处理歧义, 识别模式, solve unconventional problems, 分析的复杂性, work with abstract concepts and relationships, 检测偏差, 评估风险, and suggest alternatives. 越来越多地 these are the capacities of mind that are needed for responsible citizenship and successful careers.

Tailor your education to meet your career aspirations

Our mathematics program can serve as a stand-alone major or be combined with an additional major or minor for interdisciplinary study. 在过去, mathematics majors have included study in computer science, 业务, and education to their overall study. Students studying mathematics and secondary education have traditionally scored high within the mathematics portion of the PRAXIS standardized test. A recent graduate who majored in psychology and minored in mathematics is enrolled in the doctoral psychometric methods program at the University of Minnesota, one of the renowned programs in the nation.

WLC mathematics majors currently work as university professors and U.S. Defense Department employees, as well as serve in positions within such industries as banking and finance, 计算机编程, 软件开发, 和工程.

Immersive learning in and out of the classroom

我们的数学专业 learn from a highly qualified faculty where personal attention and one-on-one advising is the norm.  另外,你可以 take advantage of our Math Club, math tutors, mathematical modeling lab, and math study room for additional learning and study opportunities.

Math Club is a student organization designed to provide further information about mathematical careers, graduate school studies, as well as offers social activities for other math enthusiasts.

The mathematics department also employs several student tutors, an opportunity that improves credentials for graduate school and employment applications.

Consider advancing your degree in graduate school

Our graduates experience incredible success in graduate school, including a high admittance rate, plus scholarship and teaching assistantship offers at the doctoral level. 近年来, WLC’s mathematics majors have been offered scholarships and teaching assistantships for doctoral programs at a number of universities, 包括:

  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • 爱荷华州立大学
