|Description||"The key elements of Furman's strong mathematics program are a faculty committed to excellence in teaching, outstanding rapport between faculty and students, and a well-rounded curriculum that provides excellent preparation for advanced study and for the growing opportunities available to graduates with a strong quantitative background.
And there is much more. Because it requires its faculty to participate in a continuing program of professional development, the mathematics department is composed of teachers who are active professionally and aware of the latest advances in the field. The department is also firmly committed to the idea of a liberal arts education and the integral part played by mathematics in such a program. At Furman all classes are taught by professors, and because most classes are small -- lower-level classes average 25 students, upper-level classes 15 students -- students get the individual attention they deserve. Faculty members are known for their openness and collegiality, and they are deeply committed to working with students in a cooperative approach to mathematics."
