, MD,
Lafayette offers unusual breadth in its mathematics program. We provide depth and rigor for students interested in one of our major or minor programs, and rich and rewarding electives for students whose interest in mathematics grows from its applications elsewhere.

About

The mathematics programs provide a rigorous introduction to the central ideas of algebra and analysis, complemented with electives of direct interest to students who intend to pursue careers in actuarial science, data analysis, finance, higher education, management, secondary education, and many other fields in which mathematical techniques are used or taught. Students who have pursued less mathematics-centered careers, like law and medicine, have found that the mathematician’s habits of logical thought and careful abstraction are valuable there, too. Small upper-level classes, seminars, and independent study and research projects give mathematics students the opportunity to study particularly interesting topics in depth.

Programme Structure

It is important that students who wish to major in mathematics take Mathematics 290 and 300 during the first two years to ensure the widest possible selection of electives in the third and fourth years.

In all three major programs, it is strongly recommended that students take the time to plan ahead. Some courses are prerequisites for other courses, some courses are co-requisites for others, and some courses are only available in certain semesters or certain years. Planning will help you make sure you’ll get to take the courses you want to take, when you want to take them.
