Pomona Passions

"The really interesting part of economics for me is being able to...apply [the analytical tools from my math double major] to issues that I think are meaningful and make a difference in policy."
--Maria Zhu 


Colloquium & Seminars

The Claremont Colleges' mathematical community features varied research and general-interest events and lectures.


For more than 2,000 years, mathematics has been fundamental in a liberal education; in modern times, it has become the language of the natural sciences and a powerful tool in the social sciences. The mathematics curriculum at Pomona College is as well-suited to the student who wants a liberal arts introduction to mathematical thought as it is to the social or natural scientist who needs technical expertise in mathematical, statistical and computational methods. The Mathematics Major provides a broad and comprehensive offering of courses in all the mathematical sciences, including probability, statistics and operations research, as well as in the traditional areas of pure and applied mathematics. Pomona joins with the other Claremont Colleges in offering its students courses from some 60 faculty mathematicians. Programs range from the usual B.A. to a combined B.A.-M.A. program offered jointly with Claremont Graduate University to the Claremont Graduate University Ph.D. program in pure and applied mathematics. Brochures describing all mathematics courses in Claremont are available either from the Mathematics Department or the Office of Admissions. The department also offers a minor.
