, VA,
The study of mathematics enhances our appreciation of the beauty of life and prepares us to excel in modern society. It does this by developing the ability to find patterns and analyze data, to construct and clearly present logical arguments, and to navigate highly abstract concepts. 


Our mathematical sciences program fosters a community of faculty and students centered around an appreciation of the usefulness and beauty of mathematics and its importance for modern science and the liberal arts. We offer a rigorous program that gives our majors a solid foundation for graduate study or careers in mathematics, statistics, education, economics, finance and the natural sciences.

The intellectual rigor and discipline fostered by mathematics prepares students for a wide spectrum of careers including medicine, architecture, business, government and law. Students work closely with faculty mentors toward achieving their personal post-graduation goals.
