# Mathematics

Mathematicians are creative. They find solutions for old problems—and discover new problems as well. You’ll see evidence of God as you study math at Northwestern because mathematical laws describe the workings of the universe—and its divine order and constancy.

Northwestern’s math department offers 4 study options:

### Faculty

Northwestern’s full-time math faculty all hold doctorates in specializations that range from math education to Fourier-Feynman Transforms. Their investment in their students includes a math scholarship they personally funded.

### Success stats

Northwestern is 1 of just 89 colleges or universities nationwide with an “advanced undergraduate” actuarial science classification from the Society of Actuaries (and only 3 CCCU schools meet that classification). Our actuarial science students have an 89.5% first-time pass rate on the first two actuarial exams, which is significantly higher than the national average pass rate of about 52%. In addition, our students have typically passed between 2 and 3 actuarial exams by the time they graduate from Northwestern.
