Department Chair: Ernest Rothman, Ph.D.

Mathematics has always been the language of technology and the natural sciences; however, during the past several decades the influence of mathematics has spread to the life, management and social sciences as well. Furthermore, certain concepts inherent to mathematics, for example, respect for cause and effect, logic, honesty in presentation of material and critical thinking, are also at the heart of Western science and have been critical to the development of Western philosophy. Mathematics continues to be one of the greatest cultural and intellectual achievements of humankind. We wish to provide our students with the opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation of this ongoing achievement. The mathematics programs at Salve Regina University support a liberal arts education by providing students a course of study to acquaint them with a broad range of concepts and tools of modern mathematics, develop an appreciation for the beauty of mathematics and its power in applications, strengthen their powers of abstract reasoning, and develop their analytic ability for examining and discovering structures and patterns. The department offers programs leading to a major or minor in mathematics. The department also offers courses to complete the core curriculum requirement in mathematics and provides courses that constitute the mathematics component of other major programs at the University.

Students must complete a core complement mathematics course which are based on their mathematical background interests and the requirements of their major.
