Beyond Equations: Explore the Confluence of Math and Science

You love solving puzzles and are fascinated by numbers. Your determination makes you a persistent problem solver, always excited to tackle challenges. Without hesitation, you proudly identify as a math geek.

The wide world of Math at Bethel includes:

  • applied mathematics – what you use to solve a particular kind of problem or do a specific task
  • pure mathematics – the study of pattern and form, finite and infinite abstractions, logic and proofs
  • learning to “think mathematically.”
  • a general education/liberal arts curriculum that equips you with writing, speaking and communication skills that will carry you successfully through job interviews and graduate school applications after college

Plus fun!
