Welcome to the Department of Mathematics!

Small classes and personal attention make Methodist University an excellent choice for the study of mathematics. A most demanding major, mathematics challenges you to open your mind, think in abstract terms, and put it all back together in a practical application.

The emphasis is on concepts, and professors work one-on-one with you to ensure you understand and are able to take what you learn to the next level.

Independent studies are available. Many mathematics majors opt for teacher licensure. The department is a member of the Mathematical Association of America.


The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to promote the field of Mathematics and to ensure that every Methodist University student acquires the necessary mathematical skills to succeed in his/her chosen career.


  1. Students who complete the General Education/Core courses in Mathematics will be adept in basic mathematical skills.
  2. Students who graduate with a major in Mathematics or Mathematical Education will be prepared to pursue advanced degrees in graduate school or pursue careers in teaching, industries, or a related field.
