Mathematical Sciences

Academic Department

The Department of Mathematical Sciences acquaints students with a broad range of concepts and tools of modern mathematics. Our students develop an appreciation for the beauty of mathematics and its power in applications, strengthen their powers of abstract reasoning, and develop their analytic ability for examining and discovering structures and patterns.

Our graduates possess both the creative and critical thinking skills needed for success in an array of professions. Some enter graduate programs, while others pursue careers in such fields as business, finance and teaching.

Programs

Engineering (3+2 Dual Degree)

Our partnership with Washington University in St. Louis offers a dual-degree program in which students complete three years of pre-engineering study in mathematics at Salve Regina, followed by two years in Washington University's School of Engineering and Applied Science.
