Mathematics is one of the most fundamental sciences upon which many other academic disciplines are built. Applied mathematicians develop new methods and techniques or use those already established to solve practical problems in the areas of business, economics, government, and engineering and the physical, life, and social sciences. Some job titles include actuary, operations researcher, statistician, quality control engineer, and consultant. Teaching middle school and high school mathematics is also a common career.
The mathematics community at Morningside College is a friendly one. Our small department allows for an individualized educational experience for our students. We can also boast a close-knit group of undergraduate math majors who routinely tackle challenges together. The department attends both regional and national math conferences and even hosted the 2010 Mathematics on the Northern Plains regional undergraduate conference.
