Through teaching, research, and service, the Department of Mathematics seeks to provide leadership by

  • Preparing a diverse student body with the mathematical understanding, problem-solving skills, and dispositions that enable career excellence;
  • Increasing mathematical and scientific knowledge through publication and presentation and engaging undergraduates in research;
  • Supporting the broader mathematics education community and mentoring others for generous service through a committed Christian life.


Mathematics is foundational to physics, engineering, and computer science, and is increasingly important in many fields of study such as finance, accounting, economics, biology, medicine, and environmental science. Students  majoring in these and other fields will find that acquiring an additional major in mathematics or mathematical studies greatly enhances the marketability of their degree.

Special Requirements and Placement Test

Non-overlapping Credit Restrictions

Because there is substantial overlap in material covered in the following groups of courses, no student is granted credit (other than general elective credit) in more than one course from each group:

  1. MATH182, 191, 195 (Calculus with Applications, Calculus I, Calculus I for Biology)
  2. MATH145, 165, 166 (Reasoning with Functions, College Algebra, College Algebra for Business)
Minimum Grade for Prerequisites

Except for MATH191 and 195 which require a C in the prerequisite class (MATH168), the minimum grade to satisfy prerequisites is C-.

Mathematics Placement Examination (MPE) and General Education Mathematics Requirement

Information on the MPE and Andrews Core Experience Mathematics requirements is available in the section on Andrews Core Experience Mathematics  and on the Department of Mathematics Web site.
