    MoocWords2As one of the traditional academic disciplines, mathematics is an integral part of the liberal arts education and is the foundation for many areas of study. In filling many roles at UW-La Crosse the Mathematics Department serves a diverse group of students; we nurture all liberal arts students, give students a solid foundation from which to study both the natural and social sciences, provide the tools needed by students in professional programs, and cultivate mathematics majors. We strive to prepare our majors and minors for careers in teaching, business, industry, government, and graduate study.

     

    Department members regard mathematics as an interesting and lively subject, and an accessible major or minor for any student. Mathematics has both an aesthetic and a practical appeal; the enjoyment of problem solving, abstract thinking, and structural beauty draws many to mathematics, while the challenge and satisfaction of using mathematics to solve real-world problems provides an equally strong appeal. If you enjoy mathematics and want to learn more, we invite you to come study with us.
