Chair’s Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you as Chair of the Mathematics Department at Norwich University. As you consider your plans for furthering your education, I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with opportunities for studies in mathematics at Norwich. At Norwich we have an outstanding program and our offerings ranks as high as those in most small universities.  We are particularly proud of the depth and breadth of our course offerings, especially for a small university with a student faculty ratio of 14 to 1.  We offer a rich blend of both theoretical and applied courses which prepares students well for both entry level careers in mathematics, as well as admission to graduate programs in mathematics or related fields.  There is also an option to obtain licensure as a public school teacher.  The list of accomplishments of our recent graduates includes admission to graduate programs at both the master and doctoral level at schools such as Johns Hopkins, University of Vermont, and the University of Rhode Island.  Students entering the workforce have found employment in fields including statistics, computer security, finance, as well as teaching.
