The math faculty and students were like my family at HLGU. The math courses at HLGU prepared me for graduate school, and the faculty pushed me to pursue my master’s degree in mathematics. I am very grateful for my time in HLGU’s mathematics program

We Stand Out

Involved Faculty

Faculty members are accessible to students both in and out of the classrooms during students' academic career.

Small Class Sizes

Individual courses in the major are typically small, allowing preparation for teaching in secondary schools, graduate school or other math-intensive courses.

Small Department Size

Our department encourages our faculty members to get to know our students on a personal level


Math majors are encouraged to serve as tutors to help others. Tutoring is provided to both college and community students.

Math and Science Club

Members of both the Math and Science Clubs lead campus initiatives in areas like recycling and maintenance of the nature trails. We also bring in outside speakers on a variety of topics.


Students can pursue a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, equipping them to teach in secondary mathematics classrooms and work in math-intensive careers.

Further Education

We offer a foundation for many other graduate programs of study.
