Mathematics

 
The department is dedicated to providing each Mathematics major with the highest level program that a student can manage, and providing individual help and attention to each student. To accomplish this, in addition to regular courses, advanced courses are offered for small numbers of students who will benefit from a particular subject. Recent courses have included Differential Topology, Galois Theory, Set Theory, Tensor Analysis, and Chaos Theory and Dynamical Systems. The Mathematics program is broad enough in scope that students taking the basic major in Mathematics are provided the groundwork for a variety of careers, as well as having a thorough preparation for graduate study. Students also have the opportunity through the topics courses, the problem seminars, the independent studies courses, and electives to focus on individual needs and objectives.
