Overview

The best way to describe the mathematics program at Eckerd College is through the use of the word ‘flexible.’  Every semester we offer a variety of courses in both pure and applied mathematics and many of our courses are sequenced so that the knowledge gained in one reinforces the learning in another. This gives you a great deal of flexibility in your studies because you will be the one who will choose whether to emphasize the theoretical, the applied or a combination of both. At Eckerd, each student majoring in mathematics has a truly unique graduation plan.

Because our major is not prescriptive (essentially any eight upper-division math courses), you will also find that there is ample room in your schedule to double-major with another field: biology, physics, computer science, economics, psychology, visual art, marine science, and creative writing have all been popular choices these last few years.
