Find Your Major

Mathematics, more than any other human endeavor, relies on deductive reasoning to produce new knowledge from the investigation of natural events, whether they occur in our immediate environment or in the immensity of space. It serves as a universal language which represents, interprets, and integrates all such knowledge.

I have always loved mathematics, but my passion has grown throughout my time at Eureka College. My professors have always gone the extra mile to answer questions and teach in a way that ensures I understand topics at a deeper level. I am so thankful to be a mathematics major at Eureka College and cannot wait to use what I have learned in my future career!"
