Mathematics is the art of creative problem solving, the science of pattern and structure, and the quantitative language of the world. It touches all academic disciplines—and all careers. Elmhurst College mathematics majors graduate as skilled logical thinkers with the analytical tools they need to understand and work with complex patterns, to solve difficult problems independently and to rapidly assimilate new concepts.

Elmhurst College offers a selection of concentrations within the mathematics major, so you can tailor your education to suit your own professional ambitions. As a mathematics major, you’ll start with the fundamentals and then gain progressively advanced knowledge of both pure and applied mathematics. Your degree can take you to graduate school, a teaching career, the actuarial sciences, business or industry.

Elmhurst’s modern Daniels Hall houses nearly 200 computers. This equipment, along with graphing calculators and PDAs, is used extensively in the teaching of our mathematics courses. Math students at Elmhurst have unparalleled opportunities to conduct original research, in conjunction with faculty or on their own.
