The mathematics major enables students to pursue graduate study in mathematics and/or professional careers in education, business, actuarial science, and other related fields.

In addition to calculus, algebra, geometry and statistics courses, courses also are offered in Complex Variables, Graph Theory, Discrete Mathematical Structures, and Topology, among others. Opportunities for independent study are available.

Students in the 3-2 Engineering Program can major in mathematics by completing seven W&J mathematics courses required for the major, and transferring back selected courses from an engineering school to satisfy the remaining math major requirements. Students also can seek Secondary or Upper Elementary Education Certification in Mathematics.

The Mathematics major and minor are associated with the Department of Mathematics. A major requires 10 courses and a minor requires six. Courses for majors and minors are determined from a list approved by the mathematics faculty. Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
