The Mathematics program at Endicott College offers students a progressive education in cutting edge numerical and mathematical techniques with a comprehensive classical mathematics foundation. Coursework will focus on the applied aspects of mathematics and technology, giving students the tools needed to succeed in a wide range of fields. Students are able to choose from three different concentrations to tailor their individual experience. 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. Students can choose programs in Applied Mathematics, Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Statistics/Actuary, and Mathematics with a concentration in Secondary Education leading to licensure.
