Curriculum Overview

Pfeiffer’s mathematics program combines a strong liberal arts core with instruction in a wide variety of mathematical applications. Mathematics majors make a minimum investment of 58 hours, which includes courses in calculus, differential equations and linear and abstract algebra. Mathematics students also take courses in chemistry or biology and computer science, and can further tailor their degrees by selecting upper-level math courses such as theory of numbers, numerical analysis, and complex variables. Students planning to teach secondary school will also take courses in discrete methods and modern geometry, as well as probability and statistics or advanced calculus of one variable.

The staff and faculty not only supported me in my fields of study, but they also encouraged me to look beyond. As a result of mission trips to Cuba and Guatemala, my heart for the world and people expanded. My Pfeiffer experience continues to shape who I am as a person.
