Mathematics faculty like getting results as much as the next department, but they also enjoy helping students through the process. As active researchers, faculty members invite students to assist them and even encourage students to create projects of their own. Many Concordia math majors are selected to participate in Research Experiences for Undergraduates at universities across the country each year.
Our Faculty, Students and Alumni
Levi DeVries '09
Pursuing Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering, University of Maryland
Physics & Mathematics Major
Concordia fosters an environment that develops a good work ethic and stresses attention to detail. Though challenging, the classwork in physics and mathematics gave me a solid foundation for my research in aerospace engineering. Concordia faculty are encouraging and inspiring, and they go above and beyond to ensure students’ success.
Grant Weller '08
Visiting Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University
Math and Economics Major
As a statistician, I often have the privilege of working with researchers in a variety of subject areas, including business, atmospheric science, sociology, and astrophysics. Each of these fields has its own set of methodologies and terminology. Being able to understand the core concepts of collaborators' fields, as well as to effectively communicate those of my own in simple language, is a crucial skill for my career success. I believe that the liberal arts education of Concordia helped develop this skill by exposing me to subjects which I might not otherwise have learned about.
Study Mathematics Abroad
Where did math begin? We could tell you, but showing you is much more exciting. “Mathematics in Another Light” seminar to Europe and Africa is one of the longest continuous offerings of the college’s study abroad program. Destinations include Paris, Cairo, Athens, Rome and London.
