Mathematics Department

Explore reasoning, creativity and the applications of mathematics in a close-knit community. Learn critical thinking and problem-solving skills that equip you to ask and answer big questions, preparing you to more effectively respond to Christ’s call in your life.

Mathematics at Houghton prepares students for successful careers in a broad variety of fields and provides them with teaching, service and research opportunities. Collaborate with your professors to write, publish and even present research at regional and national undergraduate conferences.

Join a community of fellow Christian mathematicians for a weekly math tea with a problem of the week (and baked goods). Celebrate Pi Day with your classmates and professors, and join in the annual department picnic.
