Why RMC for Mathematics?
As a liberal arts college, Rocky Mountain College fosters all aspects of academic growth in its students. This is reflected in its rigorous general education requirements and its dedication to hiring highly-qualified faculty in all its academic programs. In addition, a low student-to-faculty ratio and small classes allow for individualized study and meaningful interaction between professors and students. This is what sets the math program at RMC apart from other programs, e.g. at state universities: not only do our graduates have a strong background in mathematics, they also have the benefit of an individual learning experience and the opportunity of working closely with their professors. Just as importantly, they acquire skills that enhance and add value to their specialized knowledge and training in mathematics. Some of these skills are: the ability to communicate clearly and effectively both verbally and in writing; integration of ideas, methods, and knowledge from sister disciplines, such as computer science and the natural sciences; and exposure to the fine arts, humanities, and social sciences.
