Mathematics

Data and its analysis allow us to improve our understanding of society and the world around us while making informed decisions. A mathematics degree at the University of Montana Western is unique in that it utilizes Experience One to provide students with the hands-on skills and experience needed to accurately gather and analyze data, which is applicable to every field of study.

These are skills sought after by employers, and they translate instantly to many future careers. Our students have gone on to conduct research at NASA, formulate policy for the National Academy of Sciences, and become award-winning educators.

Our students have utilized mathematics to:

  • program computers to recognize images and read text
  • understand the effects of parasitic worms on forests
  • establish methods to best limit the spread of disease
  • examine how the English language has evolved over time
  • determine how species are related using genome data
