The faculty of the large Mathematics Department at Lafayette has, collectively, a wide variety of interests. Typically, 30 – 40 students complete the A.B. or B.S. major in mathematics, or the A.B. joint major in mathematics and economics.
Independent study courses are usually offered at the request of interested students. These courses have covered topics in statistics, topology, differential equations, geometry, the history of mathematics, Galois theory, matroids, combinatorics, transcendental numbers, differential geometry, fluid dynamics, number theory, and probabilistic models.
