Math at Pomona provides a comprehensive offering of courses in all the mathematical sciences, with tracks in statistics and pure, applied, and general mathematics.
The Pomona College Mathematics and Statistics Department’s philosophy is that mathematics is an exciting field that offers something for everybody. The department has created a supportive, inclusive community through mentoring groups and by promoting collaborative work.
Beyond calculus and linear algebra, you’ll take courses in algebra, analysis, topology/geometry, modeling, and statistics. Majors then focus on a track in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, general mathematics and statistics. The senior exercise involves directed research, under the supervision of faculty. Many students do summer research.
Programs range from the usual B.A. to a combined B.A.-M.A. program offered with Claremont Graduate University (in either mathematics or in mathematics education).
