Mathematics, at the core of a liberal arts education and the foundation of a science curriculum, is uniquely positioned as a program at Northland College. Students in the Mathematics program develop collaborative relationships with the Mathematics faculty that allow in-depth exploration of traditional mathematical concepts. These concepts are then broadened and applied in courses taught by faculty from other disciplines.
Thus, students who graduate with a Mathematical Sciences degree have a solid foundation in mathematical concepts, and knowledge and experience in applying those concepts to model environmental, social, or physical phenomena and to solve complex problems. This dual training prepares Northland graduates to gain admission to graduate schools in mathematics, engineering, and other fields and to secure employment in a wide variety of disciplines including teaching, business, and government.
