Mathematics - Department of Mathematics - Christopher Newport University

Department of Mathematics

We offer a high-quality program in applied and pure mathematics that will challenge you to appreciate math’s power, utility and beauty.

We offer a variety of courses for those who wish to develop general or specific skills in mathematics, to satisfy the mathematics liberal learning foundation, or to earn the bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degrees in mathematics or the minor in mathematics.

We also offer a major in computational and applied mathematics (CAM). The CAM major is an interdisciplinary program that combines a rigorous mathematics core with a substantive investigation into a student’s chosen field:

  • Biology and life sciences
  • Computational chemistry
  • Economics
  • Physics, dynamics and engineering

We prepare our math majors to enter careers in industry, government and education, or to pursue graduate degrees.
