NWU Mathematics is all about intersections. Math intersects so many areas of study—like music, economics and social science.

That’s why our math majors do more than crunch numbers. At NWU, you can explore math through teaching and research while also performing and volunteering throughout the campus. You can intern in Washington D.C. and study around the world.

Your mathematical skill and the breadth of your Nebraska Wesleyan experience will expand your career opportunities.

NWU’s small classes mean more individual opportunity, and more personal growth. NWU graduates consistently pursue a variety of careers including teaching, research and law. NWU Mathematics alumni also work as engineers, actuarial scientists, analysts, computer scientists and entrepreneurs.

Mathematics faculty

NWU Mathematics faculty are award-winning, dedicated educators who use the latest technology and teaching methods to inspire greatness and change lives. Their broad interests include powerful applications of math to medical imaging, cryptography and computer science, as well as areas of pure mathematical study like combinatorics and topology.

NWU Mathematics professors—not graduate assistants—design and instruct every math course. Mathematics advisors help students identify courses and other opportunities to supplement their education to enhance success in and out of Nebraska Wesleyan.
