Studying mathematics makes you a careful thinker, an acute observer, and a skilled problem solver.
By studying mathematics at Furman, you will be a part of a community of people who value not only the field itself, but also liberal arts education and the many enriching opportunities that such an education provides.

Furman's mathematics program is built for students who thrive on challenges. Our classes are rigorous, but you'll get plenty of support from teachers, tutors, fellow students, and state-of-the-art facilities. We focus exclusively on undergraduates, which gives our professors more time to interact with you. Our professors are passionate about teaching and devoted to research.

Speaking of research, you'll have opportunities to participate in undergraduate research projects, present your work at conferences, and possibly publish your results in a research journal. Our liberal arts approach ensures you'll learn far more than the basics; you'll understand how to apply reason, logic, and intuition, which are valuable life skills.
