Mathematics emphasizes undergraduate research, small class sizes, and interactions with committed faculty mentors.
The mathematics program at Sweet Briar College is interdisciplinary and has a particularly strong connection with biology, economics and engineering.
The study of mathematics enhances our appreciation for the beauty of life. It prepares us to succeed in modern society by developing the ability to find patterns and analyze data, to construct and clearly present logical arguments and to navigate highly abstract concepts. Students of mathematics learn to break down complex problems into simpler pieces, to read carefully and to write unambiguously.
