The Mathematics major at Morris starts with a solid grounding in mathematical principles. These foundations create a framework for whatever direction the student chooses as a focus. Students can then branch out and explore areas of mathematics that match their interest or that apply to their desired field. The curriculum also emphasizes the role mathematics plays in the development of civilization and in our society.

Students can fulfill the minor in Mathematics at Morris with three core courses (Calculus 1, Calculus 2 and Linear Algebra), along with 12 more mathematics credits (with the option to substitute Stat 2601 or Stat 2611 for four of those credits).

For teaching licensure in Mathematics, students complete a Mathematics major with Geometry, Discrete Mathematics and the History of Mathematics as part of the curriculum. In addition, students fulfill the professional education program, which will include student teaching.

Because of the wide scope of the specialized knowledge and research of the faculty, the Mathematics discipline offers a diverse range of advanced courses. Pure mathematics courses include Abstract Algebra, Combinatorics, Differential Geometry, Number Theory, Real and Complex Analysis, and Topology. In applied mathematics Partial Differential Equations, Mathematical Modeling, Optimization and Operations Research, Applications of Graph Theory, and Applied Numerical Analysis are also offered on a regular basis.

Students are also required to take a course with significant mathematical applications outside the mathematics discipline. This course must be approved by a faculty advisor. A list of eligible courses »
