Mathematics-Interdisciplinary

The Indiana Wesleyan University Mathematics-Interdisciplinary major from the Division of Mathematics and Computer Information Sciences provides a strong background for students planning to directly enter the workforce in a non-teaching career. A growing awareness of the power of mathematics in many other disciplines has led to a high demand for mathematicians who are able to apply their skills to solve challenging, ill-defined, large-scale, and cross-disciplinary problems. This major includes an internship and coursework in a related academic area chosen by the student. These experiences, as well as the flexibility to select from a range of math electives, allow you to direct your studies toward your areas of interest while still completing a rigorous core curriculum in mathematics.

Like the other math-related majors offered at IWU, the Mathematics-Interdisciplinary program emphasizes the integration of faith and learning, integrity, critical thinking, discipline, communication, and technology skills. You will be prepared both academically and spiritually to impact the world.

Faculty

The IWU Math department is a supportive and Christ-centered community dedicated to cultivating a premier mathematical experience in and out of the classroom. The professors who teach courses for Mathematics majors all hold PhDs and are involved in enriching mathematical endeavors beyond classroom lectures, such as regularly meeting with students one-on-one; supporting a math club; having guest lecturers; hosting a math colloquium where students and professors give mathematical presentations on topics not found in standard classes; giving math problem challenges; participating in state, national, and international math competitions; and much more.
