Why Study Mathematics at PLU

Solving problems forms the basis of an education in mathematics. At PLU, we strive to teach interesting and enjoyable mathematics, while focusing on how to think critically. Though many graduates may not use much of the mathematical knowledge they gain while at PLU, they will always find themselves able to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of jobs in the U.S. and abroad.

Though mathematics is an old science and has been studied for years, there are still new ideas, mathematical structures, and innovations being created every day. We hope to inspire our students that learning mathematics can be both challenging and fun, and we intend for our students to gain the proper insight to become lifelong learners and to always have a passion and curiosity for mathematics.
