Mathematics is the "poetry of logical ideas." (Einstein)
The study of mathematics is one of the oldest human endeavors. It is the basic language of the natural sciences and engineering, and it is a vital tool in the social sciences, business and the arts. In addition to learning math itself, students in Bucknell's math program gain writing and speaking skills, and they often conduct mentored research or study abroad. This liberal arts focus produces graduates who are well-rounded, well-spoken and aware of their work's impact in the world.
