About

Mathematics at Willamette University is the science and art of patterns. Mathematicians discover universal truths that are at once elegant, beautiful, deep, and powerful.

Overview

At Willamette University, this Mathematics exciting work takes place in a vibrant, friendly and supportive community that encourages collaboration among students and faculty. Mathematics community activities include extensive opportunities for undergraduate research, including our own federally funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates program and math major events such as a life-sized board game competition, Pi Day, and the worldwide MegaMenger project.

Learning outcomes

Math majors have unparalleled opportunities for careers and graduate school. Our alumni include a Nobel Prize winner and the former CEO of Boeing as well as teachers, analysts, entrepreneurs and engineers.

Mathematics began with roots in the basic concepts of space and number and has flowered into many wonderful forms. The creation and discovery of new mathematics have never been more active or vital than they are today. Mathematics is sometimes called the science of pattern and order. It relies on logic as a standard of truth, but uses observation and even experimentation as means of discovering truth. Mathematicians think of their work as a blend of science and art, sometimes elegant and beautiful, describing deep and useful creations. In addition to theorems and theories, mathematics offers distinct modes of thought which are both versatile and powerful for understanding the world.

Courses serve those who wish to make mathematics a part of a liberal arts education, those who desire a mathematics background for other disciplines, such as Computer Science, Economics or the natural sciences, those who wish to minor in Mathematics, and those who wish to major in Mathematics.

Mathematics majors choose careers in education, industry, business, banking and insurance serving as teachers, statisticians, industrial mathematicians, computer programmers or analysts, actuaries and research workers in the biological, management or social sciences. Their training can also serve as a stepping stone to professional training or graduate work in a variety of fields.

This interdisciplinary major combines coursework in both the mathematics and economics programs. It is suitable for economics students who are interested in the technical/mathematical aspects of economics, and mathematics students who are interested in applied problems in economics. The major requirements provide a solid foundation for graduate studies or careers in applied mathematics, finance or various fields of economics.
