Lafayette College offers unusual depth and breadth in its mathematics courses.

Lafayette offers unusual breadth inĀ its mathematics program, providing depth and rigor for students interested in one of our major or minor programs, and rich and rewarding electives for students whose interest in mathematics grows from its applications elsewhere.



The math department is committed to developing students in and outside the classroom. We create and implement positive programs and events that encourage students to enjoy the full experience.
