    Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy, presented “The Schaefer Memorial Observatory at Geneva College” at the 34th Meeting of The Pennsylvania Astronomy Consortium.

deptlink-chem-math-phys-2.jpgGod's design and wisdom in creation is evident in the mathematical arrangement and order of the universe. A person cannot turn a wheel, design a machine, or study his environment without some knowledge of mathematics. As stewards of God’s creation, we are given the precious tool of mathematics. The applied math major offers training focused on the mathematics used in science and engineering, but also offers training in the theory of mathematics.

Why major in applied mathematics at Geneva College?

  • The applied math program easily lends itself to be a double major with another scientific field. You can earn two or even three majors in four or five years.
  • Geneva’s emphasis on Christian worldview will prepare you for a job market that values ethics and well-rounded, critical thinking.

Classes you might take

  • Calculus III
  • Linear Algebra
  • Numerical Methods
  • Differential Equations

What can you do with an applied mathematics degree?

Applied math graduates pursue a surprisingly wide variety of careers, such as:

  • Scientific research
  • Forecasting
  • Simulation
  • Statistical analysis
  • Consulting services
  • National security
  • Aerospace
  • Higher education

Our graduates have also obtained successful positions in high tech areas like computer science and electrical engineering, and gone on to graduate schools such as the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University and Rochester Polytechnic Institute.


Point of Excellence

Students have opportunities for enrichment and networking through Geneva’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter.
