Mathematics at the Mount
Whether you are just beginning your undergraduate studies or you
are transferring from another school, you are now a part of a close
community of learners. The Mount has a large number of students
majoring in Mathematics, and this network of peers will become a
valuable resource in your classes and beyond. Members of the
faculty are easy to find and eager to answer your questions about
the classes you take or the road that lies
Kappa Mu Epsilon (KME) is a national honor society whose members
are recognized for their outstanding achievements in mathematics.
The honor society encourages their members to volunteer inside and
outside of the college community. The Math Club is created and
organized by students majoring in mathematics and other students
interested in mathematics.
Each semester KME and the Math Club hold contests, competitions,
luncheons and dinners with the Math faculty, and trips to local
conferences and events. KME and the Math Club have joined forces to
create the Bishop Dunn Math Club. Students from MSMC volunteer
their time at a local middle school. This gives students the
opportunity to hone both their teaching and mathematics skills when
they are teaching non-traditional math lessons to 6th-8th grade
Bishop Dunn students.
Students majoring in Mathematics must take a minimum of 36
credits in the discipline and maintain a minimum Grade Point
Average of 2.0.
After graduation you will be ready for a career in education,
business, government, or industry, or you may choose to continue
your studies in graduate school, law school, or medical school. A
degree in Mathematics can lead to opportunities never imagined.
The projected growth in employment from 2012 to 2022 for
mathematicians is 23%, much faster than the occupational average of
