Westminster graduates have gone on to study fields such as applied mathematics, physics, economics, actuarial sciences, secondary education, computer science, and engineering. Many students begin graduate studies, enter the field of education, or move into the areas of statistics or actuarial science.

Major Highlights

  • All of our courses encourage the use of technology and teamwork, emphasizing TI graphing calculators and mathematical software
  • Do independent research and present findings at local and national mathematics conferences as well as our Undergraduate Scholars Forum
  • Participate in mathematics competitions such as the Putnam Examination or the Collegiate Mathematics Competition
  • Qualifying mathematics majors are also invited to join Pi Mu Epsilon, a nationally charted honor society dedicated to the advancement of mathematics

Dual-Degree Engineering

Math majors have the opportunity to participate in Westminster's Dual Degree Engineering Program through which they would earn a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from Westminster And a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Washington University or Missouri University of Science and Technology. In this program, students attend Westminster for 3 years and the engineering institution for approximately 2 years, thus earning two degrees in as few as five years! See the Dual-Credit Engineering page for more information.

Robert Marti Westminster Alumni "I always enjoyed mathematics, but I never knew how beautiful it really was until I started taking higher level courses. I love the fact that our math professors genuinely care about the student's understanding of the material and they're not focused on rushing through the course." Robert Marti, '13

"During my time spent at Westminster I was able to connect my love for mathematics with my passion for teaching. I continue to hold bonds with my mentors and peers who supported me during my development as a math teacher." Alyssa Monroe '11, M.Ed UMC
Shawn Campwell Westminster Alumni "Westminster gave me a wonderful foundation in the sciences. The breadth of courses that I took gave me a well-rounded education that taught me to think creatively and apply the concepts I learned to real life. In addition, I learned how to be a leader through the close community and activities that were offered. These things, as well as the support I received from the professors, have set me apart from other math students from larger universities. I am proud to have gone to such a distinguished school." Shawn Campbell, '08, Doctoral Candidate at UMC
