Why Should Somebody Study Mathematics at UMW?

Because of how great the professors are! Each and every one of them is unique and have their own way of teaching. I feel that I learned a great deal from each one of my classes and professors. The classes are small and so the professors are very personal and helpful. Because of the size of the department, I was able to gain a lot of experience researching during the summer science institute at umw and presenting research at undergraduate poster sessions at jmu and in New Orleans. I wouldn’t have wanted to learn mathematics at any other university.
