Program Distinctives

Mathematics at Westmont is not a spectator sport or a discipline that students pursue in isolation.  Our students belong to a community and they take an active role in their learning.  They collaborate with other students.  They get focused attention from their professors.  And as they take classes and work on research projects, they get knowledge and skills that make them better thinkers and communicators---knowledge and skills that prepare them for interesting and rewarding careers.

Career Choices

 Our graduates have jobs in finance, accounting, teaching (high school and college), cryptanalysis, software development, nursing, and biomedical research, just to name a few.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment is growing at faster than average rates in occupations that require a strong background in math or computer science.  For some information on the work of some alumni, see these profiles.
