Why Study Mathematics at New College?

Mathematics at New College is challenging and exciting. Working closely with faculty mentors, you will have the opportunity to actively participate in your own education, and by your senior year you will be taking advanced coursework more typically found at the master's level rather than undergraduate.

Mathematics area of concentration

The Mathematics Area of Concentration at New College is both challenging and exciting. Students are exposed to a broad range of mathematical disciplines from linear and abstract algebra to analysis and differential equations. They develop strong critical thinking and problem solving skills, the ability to produce rigorous mathematical proofs, and a deep understanding of powerful mathematical theories having many applications as well as their own internal beauty. A variety of courses and tutorials on advanced topics are available, giving majors the opportunity to work on advanced material often found in graduate school offerings.
