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, fine arts, and 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.
