A diverse and challenging field of study, mathematics is perhaps best characterized as the “science of patterns.” Every scientific pursuit, from biology to engineering to economics, relies heavily (and increasingly) on the use of higher-level mathematics and statistics. As a mathematics major at Le Moyne, you will be exposed to a variety of mathematical topics, with a breadth uncommon for a liberal arts college, by faculty members representing a wide array of specialties. The culmination of your studies will be a senior research project, born of your own interests and completed under the guidance of a faculty advisor; such projects have led to publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Mathematics majors at Le Moyne can choose from five concentrations: actuarial science, applied mathematics, education, pure mathematics, and statistics. A mathematics degree is versatile and very marketable. Even if obtaining a job working with mathematics isn’t your ultimate goal, adding a minor in mathematics can go a long way toward setting you apart from other applicants with future employers and graduate school admissions committees.
A major in mathematics prepares you for some of the most highly ranked careers in the country — mathematician, actuary, or statistician. Mathematicians apply mathematical theory and computational techniques to solve economic, scientific, engineering, and business problems. Actuaries use probability and statistics to analyze the risk associated with financial decisions made by business leaders, and are hired in the insurance and financial industries. Statisticians apply their knowledge in a variety of fields, including biology, economics, medicine, marketing, and education.

What do we want students to learn? Le Moyne’s mission statement refers to its striving for “academic excellence” through “its comprehensive programs rooted in the liberal arts and sciences.” The liberal arts tradition traces its origins back to the trivium, consisting of grammar, rhetoric, and logic, and the quadrivium, consisting of arithmetic, geometry, music/harmonics, and astronomy. In short, if one had to pick a single discipline that embodies the liberal arts in both breadth and depth, then mathematics would have the inside track for selection. Wholly consistent with the College’s mission and the liberal arts tradition, the mathematics department expects its students to learn to think mathematically.
We view mathematical thinking as a union of three complementary elements:
