To study mathematics is to study the underpinnings of all intellectual pursuits.

Mathematics is the language of patterns. If you can find a pattern in something-be it science, art, finance or sports-then you can use math to describe it and perhaps predict what will happen next. At Emmanuel, you can focus on applied mathematics, statistics or theoretical mathematics. The small size of the department means that the student gets personal attention and assistance in tailoring the course of study to her or his own interest. Students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty in research or independent study. Never will you be just a face in the crowd.


Emmanuel’s Mathematics Department provides students with a solid background in both the abstract and the applications of mathematics in preparation for a number of careers involving quantitative and analytical skills. An interdisciplinary major in biostatistics integrates mathematics courses with biology.
