The Mission of the AQ Math Department

The mission of the Mathematics Department at Aquinas College is directly linked to the mission of the College in that it provides a program for all students that is an essential part of a liberal arts education. It promotes the study of mathematics in depth in preparation for graduate school or an immediate career, supports the mathematical needs of other disciplines, and supplies a curriculum for all students to enhance their understanding of mathematical thought.
