Our students are analytical thinkers and problem solvers — critically aware of the big picture, and able to extrapolate high-level data and apply it to real-life situations.

At Simmons, our faculty are sensitive to diverse learning styles as well as the changing workplace. Our students cultivate skill and confidence through experiential projects — like computer laboratory investigations, cooperative study groups and independent learning — designed to address each student's needs.

You'll understand the basics and the advanced scientific concepts necessary to excel in any mathematics field. Our students thrive in careers and graduate study in industries like finance, scientific programming, medicine and teaching.
