Bachelor of Arts: Mathematics
The University of Maine at Farmington (UMF) Mathematics program is designed to prepare you for a career in a mathematical field or for graduate study. The program conforms to the guidelines of the Mathematical Association of America, and in addition provides you material and tools of theory, abstraction and inquiry that would be useful in a graduate mathematics program.
The Mathematics program at UMF is intended to prepare you for lives and careers involving the tools of mathematics. Here, you'll develop the skills of abstract thinking, analysis and synthesis by studying in such areas as calculus, linear and abstract algebra, logic, and probability and statistics.
Problem solving and applying mathematics to other areas of study: biology, geology, business, economics, chemistry, environmental planning, even the visual and digital arts, will be integral parts of your coursework. And to help you get the most out of your class work, many of our Mathematics classes are taught through group lab work in a workshop-style setting.
Hands-on learning and close student-faculty collaboration are UMF hallmarks. As a Mathematics student, you may have opportunities to work one-on-one with your professor on an independent study on a specialized topic. At Farmington, we have a computer lab -- specifically for Mathematics and Computer Science majors -- with specialty software.
"My Math professors here really seem to embrace teaching a subject that's so difficult for many students, but they still find keep it interesting and challenging for the ones who have a real passion for math -- like me. They also offer the personal attention I don't think you'd get at a larger school."
-- Dustin Gage
