Mathematics Major and Minor
The Mathematics Major and Minor at Davidson
The study of mathematics offers a unique and important way of interpreting the world around us, bringing accuracy and rigor to the quest for discovering patterns in observations both abstract and concrete.
The Mathematics and Computer Science Department intends for majors to acquire a broad and solid base in mathematics enabling both further study and application, and we aim to provide an outstanding undergraduate environment of courses and opportunities.
We nurture mathematical, computational, and algorithmic points of view in students embarking on a liberal education, desiring skills for other endeavors, and pursuing contemporary ideas in mathematics and computer science.
Ceiling Exception Request
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science does not keep "waiting lists" for classes, however, by the end of the first week of classes, the chair will make any ceiling exceptions on a case-by-case basis. If you think a MAT or CSC course should be considered for a ceiling exception, please complete a request.
