The mission and goal of the Department of Mathematics is to cultivate in our students the careful logic, deep thinking, and creative ideas that characterize mathematical thought and contribute to responsible citizenship. By providing high-quality instruction in mathematical content, skills, and reasoning, the Department will contribute to the broad education of all students and will prepare its majors for advanced degree programs and/or careers requiring training in mathematics.
Beyond the Classroom
Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.
Research and Opportunities
- Department-funded travel to national and regional mathematics conferences
- Summer independent research opportunities with W&J mathematics faculty
