Mathematics is a source of intrinsic beauty of numbers, shapes, structures, and interrelationships; it is also a tool to help solve practical problems in many fields of human endeavor. The history of mathematics was shaped through interaction with Christianity, and course work reflects the enormous usefulness of mathematics to describe the universe created and sustained by God. The program for mathematics majors is the traditional mathematics undergraduate program. Coursework for nonmajors is designed to help students acquire and refine computational and analytical skills needed to function well in their chosen vocations. Mathematics students will have real-world experience through research, modern technology use, and hands on projects. Physics is recommended to fulfill the core science requirement.

Mathematics faculty advise mathematics majors and pre-engineering students.
