About Mathematics
Mathematics strives to prepare students for successful graduate study or a career in private industry, governmental service, or teaching.

Overview
At Morehouse, Mathematics majors delve into both a practical and abstract exploration of relation, quantitative science, and objects.
The Mathematics Program produces competent mathematics graduates by providing a rigorous and balanced mathematics curriculum and serves the mathematical needs of Morehouse. We strive to foster in our students ethical and civic behavior as well as provide them with leadership opportunities. We maintain high expectations and instill habits for independent and lifelong learning.
We also prepare our students to succeed in graduate and professional schools and to pursue professional careers. The mathematics major enhances its students’ intellectual abilities by developing their mathematical thinking skills (logical reasoning, generalization, abstraction, and formal proof), communication skills to convey mathematical knowledge and technology skills for comprehension and mathematical research, as well as by exposing students to the mathematical sciences both in breadth and depth.
A student pursuing a major in mathematics is encouraged to choose a minor in one of a variety of areas in the physical, social, managerial, biological, chemical, computer, or engineering sciences in which mathematics is an essential tool.

Mathematics strives to prepare students for successful graduate study or a career in private industry, governmental service, or teaching.
Students majoring in mathematics will develop mathematical thinking skills beyond a procedural and computational understanding of mathematics and emphasize a broad understanding encompassing logical reasoning, generalization, abstraction, and formal proof; develop communication skills to convey mathematical knowledge; demonstrate knowledge of, and apply skills in, technology (mathematical software platforms, programming, presentation packages, and information sources) to enhance comprehension and research of mathematics; and gain exposure to a broad and deep view of the mathematical sciences.
