Mathematics

The Mathematics program at Endicott College offers students a progressive education in cutting-edge problem solving techniques based on a comprehensive foundation in classical mathematics. Advanced coursework will focus on the applied aspects of mathematics and technology, giving students the tools needed to succeed in a wide range of fields such as mathematical modeling, statistics, risk management, or data analysis. Combined with Endicott College’s liberal arts foundation and experiential learning through internship opportunities, the students in the Mathematics program will receive a well-rounded education in both current and classical theories and techniques. 

Actuary and Statistics concentration: Students particularly interested in careers as statisticians, data analysts, or actuaries can choose to pursue a concentration in Actuary and Statistics.

Mathematics/Secondary Education Teacher Licensure concentration: Students electing to become middle or high school teachers can select the concentration in Secondary Education with Teacher Licensure.
