Denison is an antiracist, diverse living, learning, and working community and sees this as essential to its educational mission. The college and the department are committed to an inclusive and welcoming community for its students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants that can work effectively with students from groups that have been historically marginalized in higher education.
The Department of Mathematics maintains close ties with the Department of Computer Science. The two departments graduated 42 majors and 22 minors in 2020, supported by 18 full-time faculty members. We offer an innovative variety of pure and applied upper division courses, while contributing to new programs at Denison such as Data Analytics, Global Commerce, Global Health, and Financial Economics. We engage our students in a myriad of ways ranging from department-sponsored social events to internally-supported undergraduate research.
