## Mathematics

*“In Corban's Math Department, we focus on the question of if mathematics was invented or discovered. At most institutions, you will not hear this discussion. Our program is also small enough so that students get the special attention they need, but big enough to delve into the great depths of mathematics.”-Michael T. Miller, Department Head*

#### Program Overview

Because the physical and biological worlds were created by God, they exhibit orderliness that can be understood and studied through mathematics. The mathematics department views the study of mathematics as a means of understanding God’s creation and using those findings in science and technology. A degree in mathematics serves as preparation for careers in fields such as engineering, statistical research, computer science and education. Generally students with a mathematics degree will do graduate study in a specialized area before entering a career.
