Who We Are

The Mathematics Department offers three degree paths — a bachelor of arts, a bachelor of science, and a flexible degree in Applied Mathematics, where the student chooses the applied area to study. 

Our graduates have gone to graduate school in mathematics and other fields and are employed in teaching, data analysis, actuarial work, statistics, legal work, and programming, as well as other areas.

Our Mission

The Mathematics Department at Seattle Pacific University seeks to provide excellent instruction to enable our students to become competent in the mathematics required for their chosen fields, and to share our expertise with the community through service and leadership.
