Hartwick College Math Student Presenting at Showcase

Mathematics Department Overview

Hartwick offers major programs in mathematics and actuarial mathematics. Both majors urge students to ask their own questions, and provide them not only with an understanding of mathematical principles and the application of those principles to their questions, but also with the ability to think logically and express themselves precisely and creatively. Mathematics students at Hartwick are strongly encouraged to learn to work independently and pursue their own interests within either major.

Exciting Student Outcomes

Upon completion of a mathematics major program, students are well-prepared for employment or graduate school.
