The various disciplines within the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science are united by their reliance upon:

- methods for discovering and demonstrating patterns, and for constructing structures that exhibit, unify and illuminate these patterns;
- applications of these structures to model a wide variety of phenomena in mathematics and the sciences;
- precise language as a means to express patterns and describe structures.

Students in programs associated with this Department are therefore trained in theoretical and practical problem-solving skills that prepare them to contribute in a wide variety of industrial, educational and other professional settings.

The Department offers:

All majors require a senior comprehensive experience. For Mathematics majors, the comprehensive experience takes the form of several written exams, usually taken during the final semester at the College. At the beginning of each semester, students who should take the exams are contacted by the Mathematics program coordinator and advised of a course of study to prepare for these exams. Exam results are communicated by the program coordinator to the Registrar.
