Program offers diverse areas of study
For the Bachelor of Arts, students may choose a major or minor in mathematics, as well as a double major with another field. Our department has distinguished faculty members who represent several of the major areas of mathematics and make themselves accessible to students as both teachers and advisers.
Small classes, Convenient access to resources
Most classes normally have fewer than 20 students. The relatively small number of mathematics majors gives our program many of the characteristics and benefits of a small college. Students have automatic Internet access and free software, as well as around-the-clock access to computing labs. The close proximity of essential student resources, including a mathematics library, faculty offices, study areas, advising offices, and lounges creates a mathematics community in which undergraduates are encouraged to participate.
Math Club builds stronger community among students
We sponsor and encourage participation in the OLLU Math Club and mathematics contests. Our undergraduate e-mail mailing list keeps students informed of important university and departmental news.
Awards and scholarships
Each year our department offers awards, including scholarships, to students based on their performance in mathematics, with amounts ranging from $100 to $1,000. Juniors and seniors may be hired as undergraduate interns to assist in lower-level courses as tutors, graders and proctors. In addition, research experiences exist in the undergraduate programs for advanced students.
