Department of Mathematics

Welcome to the Kutztown University Department of Mathematics.  While part of a large university, our department offers a small community atmosphere.  In particular, our focus is squarely on our students.  Our excellent faculty members are dedicated to providing learning opportunities both in class and through individual undergraduate research experiences.  From freshman level Calculus to the capstone Senior Seminar, small class sizes encourage personalized attention from our faculty.  We offer a wide variety of upper-level courses that allow and encourage students to pursue their interests and widen their horizons. 

Our graduates pursue many different paths after graduation. Some attend graduate school, while others work for major corporations around the world. Many become teachers, often here in the Lehigh Valley or Berks County.
