The MVNU Experience
Mathematics majors at MVNU take courses in algebra, calculus, statistics, computer science, and discrete mathematics and then choose electives from among a number of advanced courses and topics. Class sizes are small, allowing the highly-qualified faculty to engage one-on-one with the students and make class time both creative and instructive.
