Why Study Math at Concordia?Small class sizes make for close contact with instructors who are easily accessible and known as outstanding mentors and teachers. This offers the ideal setting for you to explore the connections between mathematics and many other disciples. Concordia’s emphasis on liberal arts allows you to connect your mathematics to other areas such as physics, religion, global language or business. Concordia also provides a strong math teacher preparation program – ours was one of the first teacher education programs approved by the Minnesota State Board of Teaching.
In addition to collaborating with experienced professionals inside the classroom, you will also have the chance to gain valuable hands-on experience through Concordia’s Cooperative Education program. Our students regularly intern in a variety of fields such as actuarial science, accounting, business, national security, computer technology and education.
There are also numerous opportunities for outside research at other universities, work as a tutor and participation in the Centennial Scholars Program, conducting one-on-one research with our faculty. Through this scholars program, select students work closely with a professor to study a topic or theory, co-author a research paper and hold a public presentation.
Or, if you really want to get out in the world and explore the roots of mathematics, try the Math May Seminar “Mathematics in Another Light.” You’ll travel with experienced faculty to historical Cairo, Athens, Rome, Paris and London for a month-long adventure.
