Mathematics is a field that is both a science and an art. As a science, mathematics has many important and interesting applications in areas, such as finance, statistics, engineering, economics, market research and the whole range of the sciences (actuarial, physical science, life, computer and social science). In its higher levels, mathematics becomes an art when one understands the interrelationship among concepts from different areas and appreciates the elegance and beauty that mathematics embodies.
At St. Gregory’s University, our 12/1 student-to-teacher ratio allows students ample opportunity to participate in discussions, to think creatively, to give their reasoning in written and verbal format and to develop their analytical skills.
Graduates from the St. Gregory’s mathematics program choose from a wide variety of opportunities. Some have entered graduate school and earned a master’s degree. Others have discovered a passion for teaching and found employment in high schools. All are strong competitors in the job market.
