Studying mathematics at Linfield

female student portrait

Mathematics embodies the spirit of the liberal arts.

Mathematics offers analytical tools and critical-thinking skills to all of us. Our majors see that mathematics stands on its own as an artistic endeavor grounded in a rigorous, precise argument.

You will learn mathematical tools as well as habits of thought that will help you thrive as life-long learners.

In and beyond the classroom

Our curriculum has been designed to provide:

  • A rigorous study of core undergraduate mathematics for those interested in graduate studies in mathematics, and careers in mathematics or data science
  • Support in disciplines in which advanced mathematics plays an important role, such as physics, chemistry, biology, computer science and economics
  • Flexibility to earn double majors in mathematics and a second field of study, if you wish
  • Mathematical literacy and quantitative reasoning skills if you’re interested in developing this side of your intellect

You will take off-campus travel courses that count toward the math major or minor, join in math competitions, pursue student-faculty collaborative research, and follow other Linfield Mathematics alumni in pursuing a variety of meaningful careers.
