Mathematics

Wherever you are in your journey with mathematics, we have a place for you in the math department. We have courses to develop basic competence in mathematical reasoning and intermediate courses that provide the necessary support for a variety of majors. We also have a full course of study for students intending to become teachers, actuaries, researchers, or engineers — and for those who are preparing for graduate study in mathematics or related areas.

For those who elect to major in mathematics, you’ll be welcomed to a department that works hard to tailor your course of study to your goals.

Math majors choose from various upper-level courses in topics as diverse as abstract algebra, topology, real analysis, and complex analysis. Courses in computer science and physics are required, and students can select other advanced courses based upon your interests, choosing from classes such as probability and statistics, discrete structures, and the history of mathematics. We can also help to design a faculty-guided independent study for a unique learning experience.

19 Students Join Mathematics Honor Society

Earlier this month,19 Augustana students and five current and former faculty members formed the inaugural class of the South Dakota Delta chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, the National Mathematics Honorary Society.

High school students who have already completed Calculus I and wish to continue their mathematical education by taking Calculus II can enroll at Augustana. Interested students should contact Adam Heinitz to register. Click here to learn more.
