Introduction

Mathematics is critical part of a well-rounded education because quantitative skills are needed in almost every field. A liberal arts education gives math majors the chance to build strong foundational skills in mathematics, statistics, and computer science, while also allowing the space to explore other subjects. At Wooster, math majors find they can double major in nearly any other subject because of the interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum. Wooster' small classes are taught by full-time faculty members dedicated to undergraduate teaching. Students have lots of experiential learning opportunities during the academic year through programs such as Senior Independent Study, Sophomore Research, DataFest, and an international mathematical modeling competition, along with summer opportunities such as AMRE and internships.

Small classes taught by full-time faculty dedicated to undergraduates are just one reason math majors thrive at Wooster. Experiential learning has had a prominent place in our department for nearly three decades. In 1994, the department created the summer Applied Methods and Research Experience program (AMRE), in which students get paid while gaining consulting experience. Teams of students with faculty advisors work on applications with business, industry, or agency clients, or do academic research in a specialized area within the mathematical and computational sciences. Routine AMRE clients include Fortune 500 corporations Goodyear and Progressive Insurance. All students at Wooster complete independent study projects under the guidance of a faculty mentor, culminating in a thesis delivered in the spring of the student' senior year. Many go on to earn advanced degrees in a wide range of STEM fields or in economics/finance.
