Department of Mathematical Sciences
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.
The members of the faculty in the Department of Mathematical Sciences are academically talented professionals who are committed to the success of our students. They provide opportunities for students to develop and practice reasoning and problem-solving skills within a structured framework. They challenge students to think in sophisticated manners that are simultaneously creative and structured. Our faculty members actively seek or create individualized experiential learning opportunities for students including research experiences, internships, and teaching practices. Lee faculty members are caring individuals who have a passion for mathematics and for sharing its beauty and complexity with our students.
