As a mathematics major at Dickinson, you will join a vibrant and supportive community of learners, teachers and scholars. Our department offers pure and applied courses taught by dynamic and award-winning faculty who employ a variety of pedagogical techniques. In addition to being passionate teachers, the mathematics faculty at Dickinson are successful researchers with diverse scholarly interests, giving majors access to expertise relevant to their individual goals.

Among mathematics majors nationwide, Dickinson graduates rank #25 for starting salaries at U.S. bachelor-degree-granting institutions (Texas Public Policy Foundation, 2020)

Our majors are accepted into highly competitive REUs (research experiences for undergraduates) and internships, present at professional conferences and participate in research projects that lead to publications with faculty members. The department hosts biweekly colloquia (Math & CS Chats); regular social functions such as all-ages happy hours, the Welcome Back BBQ and the Tome Tumbler; and the annual Major’s Dinner, at which we present awards and perform honor society inductions.

With a Dickinson mathematics foundation, our graduates have found success in many different careers. Each year, several students pursue graduate studies in mathematics and related fields, while others build outstanding careers as actuaries, consultants, scientists and educators.  

Students who wish to take their first mathematics class at Dickinson or wish to receive credit for a mathematics course taken elsewhere should visit the placement and transfer credits page or the advising guide.

“A liberal-arts education is more than just getting a degree in a particular major, as it helps you in overall development. I am a computer science and mathematics major, and I was able to use the knowledge I gained from the classes and projects during my internship. However, it was not limited to that as I had an opportunity to take different classes from different departments including businesses and participate in different programs like Innovation Competition. Having these opportunities really helped me to understand the dynamics of an organization properly.”
