Located in Hayes Hall, the Department of Mathematics is comprised of nine faculty members, all of whom put teaching first - and yet remain engaged in the field. They teach about 27 courses a year. There are two concentrations within the mathematics major: classical mathematics and statistics.
Kenyon's program blends related but distinguishable facets of mathematics: theoretical ideas and methods, modeling real-world situations, the statistical analysis of data, and scientific computing. The curriculum is designed to develop competence in each of these aspects of mathematics in a way that responds to the interests and needs of individual students.
