ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The mathematics major provides students with a fundamental foundation in mathematics, preparing them for further study or for careers in education or a wide spectrum of industry. The purpose of the Department of Mathematics is to support the vision and mission of William Jessup University by equipping its students with quantitative and analytical skills necessary to lead and serve in an increasingly technological world.
Assessment of student outcomes shall be accomplished primarily through a senior portfolio – a compilation of their work from throughout their Jessup experience. The completed portfolio is the final product of the senior seminar class. This seminar is the capstone class for the degree and gives students the opportunity to demonstrate verbal and written communication skills, to research mathematical topics of interest, and to prepare for future employment or advanced studies in mathematics.

The following list of private fee based tutors is provided as a service for students, and should not be interpreted as an endorsement or recommendation by the William Jessup University Mathematics Department.

We hope the classes will open their eyes to the depth and beauty of mathematics. They will learn to see mathematics as more than algorithms and formulas, but as an exciting universe of structures, ideas and a window into God’s creation. – Bradley Wagner, Associate Professor
