Allentown, PA, United States
The mathematics department is dedicated to engaging students in the exciting study of mathematics, both for the beauty inherent in pure mathematics as well as the power and utility of the subject in applications across all fields of modern life.

Overview

The mathematics program 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 major 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 B.S. 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.
