The Carroll Difference
The Carroll Difference is engagement. With small, project-oriented courses and active-learning environments, the curriculum supports students while empowering them to apply what they're learning to real-world scenarios. Experiences like "Math in the Mountains" and international math modeling contests allow students to put their skills to the test in their own community and the world.
Why Mathematics at Carroll?
At Carroll, our Mathematics major focuses on the skills you need to succeed at the next level.
In order to develop expertise in an area of applied mathematics, Carroll math majors take courses to complete a cognate concentration in a field of interest. You can select from biology, business and economics, chemistry, computer science, data science, engineering, environmental science, operations research, secondary education, or work with your advisor to develop a plan unique to your interests.
The Carroll math program has received numerous grants from the National Science Foundation to support its unique teaching approach, and has recently been awarded a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation to revise its statistics curriculum.
Upon graduation, our students are able to obtain employment or admission to a graduate program in a mathematics-related field. Graduates from Carroll's mathematics program make an immediate impact in a variety of careers. Our alumni are working as actuaries, computer programmers, engineers, hospital administrators, and secondary teachers -- to name a few.
