Study the language by which the book of the universe can be read.
Physicists use the language of mathematics to “read” matter and energy. Musicians use it to “read” rhythm and harmony. Statisticians and data scientists use mathematics to “read” patterns in data. When you study mathematics and statistics at Calvin University, you'll work together with expert faculty to explore and interpret what Galileo called the “alphabet in which God wrote the universe.”
Tailor your program to focus on applied mathematics, pure mathematics, computational mathematics, statistics, or actuarial studies. You may also choose to pair studies in mathematics with business or economics, or with a particular academic program in the sciences. There's no end to your career options when you build a strong foundation of mathematics.
Take the next step:
Solve problems and build creative-thinking skills in a program personalized to your career goals.
