About

Study the complexities of Mathematics concepts, proofs and reasoning in a close-knit community with plenty of opportunities for teaching, service and research at Houghton College.

Overview

The mathematics major at Houghton provides an academically rigorous environment for you to learn and thrive. The major prepares you to work both collaboratively and independently and develops oral and written communication of mathematics, a combination of content, reasoning and communication that readies you for a wide variety of vocations.

Be part of a community of mathematicians that sits down for a weekly math tea with a problem of the week (and baked goods), celebrates Pi Day and holds an annual department picnic.

Graduates pursue graduate school and careers in actuarial science, architecture, computer science, education, finance, industry, the health professions, law and even linguistics.
