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.

"An Introduction to Lazy Cops and Robbers on Graphs," an article by mathematics lecturer Brendan Sullivan, Nikolas Townsend '17 and Mikayla Werzanski '17, was published as the first article in the November 2017 issue of The College Mathematics Journal by MAA (Mathematical Association of America).Read the article
Saint Spotlight: Brianna Wiseman '15
Mathematics and secondary ed major Brianna Wiseman '15 began her first year at Emmanuel with her mind set on becoming a teacher. So how, five years later, did her path lead to Fidelity Investments and her current position as a Deployment Analyst? "Attending a liberal arts school, I was exposed to so many new ideas outside of my major that I wanted to explore further," she said.Read more about Brianna
Small classes, big advantages
Faculty in the Mathematics Department have a wide range of backgrounds and interests and work one-on-one with students or in student-faculty research groups to help hone their interests as early as the first year.
