The Mathematics curriculum at William Jewell College is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the subject, as well as a strong background in the liberal arts. Mathematics majors are challenged to explore the origins and applications of mathematical problems, many of which arise from various fields of science. Mathematics majors pursue balanced study in pure and applied mathematics to enhance their careers in mathematics and other scientific fields.
Studying Mathematics at William Jewell provides opportunities to participate in a variety of college-sponsored programs (intercollegiate athletics, music, find arts, and Christian missions); to study in a department that offers personal attention and small classes (taught exclusively by Ph.D. professors); and to become active in research and professional societies as undergraduates.
Degree program offered:
In this ever-changing world, mathematics is an important component to any field. Through this course of study, students can explore connections between various areas of mathematics and other liberal arts courses. Students at Jewell have the opportunities to put their mathematics skills to the test, both on and off campus. On-campus opportunities include individualized research, collaborative research with other students and professors, participating in KME mathematics honor society meetings and co-curricular activities through other academic departments.
Mathematics majors are well prepared to take on any number of challenges outside of the academic setting. Other benefits to being a mathematics major include:
- Mathematics graduates go on to pursue graduate studies or careers in business, non-profit organizations, or the sciences;
- Students have the opportunity to double major in mathematics and something else of their choice, thus broadening their academic scope;
- Jewell mathematics majors can become certified to teach through a major in math and education.

Patrick Bunton, Ph.D.
Professor of Physics and Chair
Dr. Bunton received his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University.
Erin Martin, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Dr. Martin received her Ph.D. from the University of Utah in 2008. Her emphasis is in commutative algebra. Specifically, she is interested in Serre's Vanishing Conjecture which deals with how subspaces intersect. Other research interests include Zero Divisor Graphs and Cohen Macaulay posets. Dr. Martin joined the faculty in 2010.
