Congrats to our graduates!

The Department of Mathematics sincerely congratulates its graduating seniors. You have been exceptional representatives of the department and college, especially in the wake of the previous term. We are proud of what you have and will accomplish. A hip hip hooray for the class of 2020!! 


We hope everyone has a wonderful summer! 


  • ANALYZING COVID AS A MATH PROBLEMReal-world applications of mathematics to model the spread of COVID-19 and a tick-borne illness were the subjects of two separate research projects by CURCA summer scholars.  For details see the write-up here

    Find out by minoring in the NEW statistics minor, which will start in Fall 2020. The new minor provides students with tools commonly used in statistical analysis and the interpretation of data. Therefore, the new minor is a perfect complement to quantitative majors, such as Data Science, Actuarial Science, Biology, and Math, among many many others. A special thanks goes out to Dr. Tosun for developing the program.
  • The Department of Mathematics is happy to share the news that 3 new math courses have been approved by the college. The courses, which focus on Regression analysis (MATH 372), Advanced Statistical Methods (MATH 375), and Fundamental Topics in Applied Math (MATH 399), are all slated for roll out sometime soon!

    Public health policies have mixed results depending on the infectious disease. Face coverings, for example, have flattened the curve against COVID-19, but they will be of little use during a zombie outbreak. For details on how to survive, click here 

Get Ahead of the Game

Whether developing software, designing an experiment, or interpreting experimental data, Siena’s math courses will help you build a strong foundation to make you more efficient and effective. Adding a math minor provides you with an edge in the job marketplace-no matter what your goals!
