Mathematics Major (BS) and Minor
Our math major will give you skills and knowledge that you can apply to almost any field. You’ll learn how to solve problems, think critically, and communicate effectively. You’ll hone your ability to view complex problems from different perspectives, allowing you to break them into more manageable pieces. Then you’ll address those smaller pieces with approachable solutions.
You’ll explore courses on probability theory, discrete mathematics, vector calculus number theory, and experimental mathematics. You’ll also learn how to communicate mathematical ideas clearly both orally and in writing.
Our faculty integrate technology throughout their classes and work with each student individually to help them develop skills that will be valuable throughout their life.
As a mathematics student at Lynchburg, you’ll:
- Explore many different topics, like calculus and algebra, number theory, and experimental mathematics.
- Learn how to apply mathematical concepts to other fields of study.
- Solve complex problems by breaking them down into smaller, more manageable parts.
