"The chief aim of all investigations of the external world should be to discover the rational order and harmony which has been imposed on it by God and which He revealed to us in the language of mathematics."

*Johannes Kepler *

**Mission Statement:**

The Wayland Baptist University mathematics department seeks to promote a mathematical mindset in a distinctively Christian environment. We provide a program of foundational mathematics for all undergraduate students as well as special programs for mathematics majors.

**Welcome**:

Thank you for visiting the website for the Mathematics Department at Wayland Baptist University.

Both the content and the method of mathematics are important for meeting the needs of the world as well as the development of the individual. As a tool of the sciences, mathematics is indispensable, while as an art, it challenges the ability and appreciation of the best minds. The mathematics department seeks to do three basic things: teach fundamental mathematical concepts, show how mathematics can be applied to the real world, and investigate the nature of the mathematical process itself.

**Degree Programs:**

A major in mathematics and a major in mathematics for secondary certification are offered. In addition, there are a minor in mathematics and a pre-engineering cooperative program with Texas Tech University. The degree requirements for the math programs are listed here.
