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.
