Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematicsfrom Cedar Crest College emphasizes creative engagement in mathematical thinking and confident problem solving, skills widely recognized as critical in confronting our national and global challenges. The course of study stresses analytical and logical reasoning skills based on classical mathematical thought. Grounded in the liberal arts, the curriculum stresses an understanding of the nature and structure of mathematics, its processes, and applications. Courses in this  program are designed to develop in the student critical thinking skills and the ability to apply them to problems within various disciplines as well as cross-disciplinary problems. 

The Bachelor in Mathematics is a versatile and empowering degree, enabling the graduate to work in a wide variety of career areas in satisfying, challenging positions, and at salaries well above those job fields traditionally occupied by women. A mathematics major can lead to graduate study in mathematics, but also prepares a student for programs in law, finance, and medicine. Despite dramatic increases in the number of women studying sciences and technology, mathematics remains a disciplinary stronghold, an area in which women are still vastly underrepresented. The Department is intensely committed to increasing the participation of women in mathematics and mathematics education, and affirms the importance of this goal for a women’s college.
