Overview

Key Features

Mathematics is one of the oldest learned disciplines, and continues to be a vital and developing topic of research. It is the basis for understanding much of the physical world, and it has become essential for the study of modern developments in the social sciences. Mathematics graduates are very much in demand in teaching, the business world, and the computing professions.

The Mathematics program of Vassar College develops a precision of thought and articulation that is valued highly outside of mathematics--for example, in law or in science. The curriculum ranges over a large portion of the landscape of mathematical ideas from symmetries to measures of randomness, from the calculus to abstract vector spaces. Developing a student’s intuition about new mathematical objects is a goal of our courses, accomplished through lecture, workshop, assignments, and oral and written presentations.

Our biweekly colloquium, the annual Asprey Lecture, and participation in URSI offer opportunities to get a glimpse of the living subject that is present-day mathematics.
