Mathematics

What is Mathematics?

Dr. Richard Courant, one of the outstanding modern mathematicians and the founder of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, has said that "mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality."

This is a traditional view held for a long time by most mathematicians. However, the role of mathematics gradually has expanded over the years to include many areas of application today. Courant's basic elements have evolved into such areas as biostatistics, ecological differential equations, behavioral sciences, systems analysis, operational research, linear programming and model theory.

Indiana University Southeast offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in mathematics which provide a sound background for students who plan on studying for advanced degrees in mathematics, as well as for students who plan on following careers in industry, business or education.

Special Features

Upper-level mathematics courses at IU Southeast are taught by full-time faculty members who hold doctorate degrees in mathematics or statistics. Class sizes are small, allowing for individualized instruction and considerable interaction between students and faculty. Outside of the classroom there are further opportunities to learn and to interact with faculty, such as the Mathematics Club.
