Mathematics is a universal part of human culture. Its universality makes it a powerful tool in a variety of endeavors including the study of the natural sciences, the social sciences, computer science, business, and economics. Studied for its own sake, mathematics is appreciated as much for its elegance and beauty as for its practicality. Mathematics is the science of discovering patterns yet unlike the other sciences mathematics offers a standard of certainty through mathematical rigor and proof. The study of mathematics is one of the cornerstones of a liberal education, training the mind in logical thought, precise expression, and critical thinking.

The mathematics curriculum at Utica College is designed to meet the needs of students who have one of the following objectives: (1) to pursue graduate study in mathematics; (2) to prepare for careers as mathematicians in industrial or governmental laboratories, and in fields which rely mainly on mathematics such as actuarial work, statistical analysis, and economics; (3) to teach mathematics in elementary and secondary schools; (4) to contribute to their liberal education by studying the language and fundamental methods of mathematics.
