Mathematics is a language capable of clear and precise expression. Students in the major will increase their knowledge of mathematics, become more proficient communicators of mathematical ideas, enchance their creative capacities, and ponder the connections between faith and mathematics. They have opportunities to participate in summer research projects at Westmont and at other institutions, to help run a high school mathematics contest, and to tutor in local schools.
Graduates are well-prepared for a wide variety of careers. They have entered the fields of finance, accounting, teaching (high school and college), cryptanalysis, nursing, and biomedical research. Graduates have gone on to medical and law schools and to graduate school in mathematics, statistics, economics, and public health.
