The Department of Mathematics offers a major B.S., and B.A., and minor in Mathematics. The department offers courses in support of other programs and departments, including: Education, Business Administration and the sciences, and in support of the College’s General Education, areas of Scientific Inquiry, and Statistical Reasoning.
The teaching mission of the department is to introduce students to the central ideas, methods and achievements of mathematics and to develop such general intellectual skills as rigorous reasoning, problem solving and persuasive expression. The mathematic major prepares students to:
- Pursue graduate studies or work in mathematics and related areas;
- Use their skills in business, education, service professions and in technology-based industries; and
- Engage in life-long learning and growing.
At Stonehill, mathematics students work with faculty dedicated to the development of mathematics and to the learning and appreciation of the nature and application of mathematics. Beyond the campus, mathematics students can enrich their experience with internships, study abroad or service learning.
