As a fundamental component of a liberal arts education, study in the mathematical disciplines establishes a foundation for a lifetime of critical thinking. It provides students the opportunity to develop skills in problem-solving, logical analysis, and computational reasoning. The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers programs designed to prepare students for careers in pure and applied mathematics, mathematics education, actuarial science, engineering, and computer science. The ability to analyze and solve complex problems makes our graduates attractive to employers in a variety of fields including banking, insurance, finance, government agencies, meteorology, and statistics. The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Lee University will provide students with first-rate instruction in the discipline and opportunities to work closely with members of a talented, caring, and committed faculty.

Sam Gruber

Sam Gruber, a junior mathematics major with engineering emphasis, grew up in Cleveland, Tennessee. At Lee, he works in the mathematics department for Arin Harden and for Dr. Jason Schmurr as his student worker. Sam is also currently the designated LEAP mathematics tutor and previously worked in the Squires Library as a technical services student assistant. “The best part of my Lee experience so far is either the deep and intimate relationships I have developed over the past two years, or the opportunity to study intensely with close friends as we are allowed to learn more about our intricate universe,” said Sam. After graduation, he is considering earning a PhD in some form of applied mathematics.
