Professor working with students in a math class

The Mathematics program at the University of Maine at Farmington helps you develop the marketable skills of abstract thinking, analysis and synthesis by studying areas such as calculus, logic, probability and statistics.

We pride ourselves on our personal connection with each student. Our Mathematics faculty create a supportive atmosphere while guiding you to become an independent learner.

Mathematics students at UMF have wonderful opportunities to engage in high-end, on-campus undergraduate research under the close and supportive mentorship of a mathematics faculty member.

Students in our Mathematics program have presented their research at regional and national conferences, and have published scholarly papers in peer-reviewed research journals.

Two Math Options: Applied Track and Pure Track

To better prepare you for the workforce and meet your specific interests, the Mathematics program at UMF offers two different options: a Pure Track and an Applied Track.

The Applied Track includes courses that are more application focused and includes a concentration in a non-math field of your choosing (in consultation with your academic advisor) such as Computer Science, Physics, or Business.

The Pure Track focuses on courses that are more theoretical in nature.

The Mathematics major conforms to the guidelines of the Mathematical Association of America, the largest professional society in the world with a focus on undergraduate mathematics.
