“Give me a place to stand and I will move the world.”  – Archimedes

From classic antiquity to the modern age, mathematicians have been moving our understanding of the world forward. Iona’s Mathematics programs will prepare you to make an impact in some of today’s most challenging fields–and move your own career forward in the direction that interests you.
In addition to gaining a solid foundation in mathematical methods and techniques, you’ll develop the logical and analytical thinking skills that will enable you to become a valued problem-solver within a broad range of industries.
The Mathematics Department has a proven track record when it comes to job placement.

An opportunity to study broadly and deeply

Iona’s mathematics curriculum emphasizes the three major fields of study, algebra, analysis and applied mathematics, while giving students the chance to delve more deeply into an area of personal interest. All courses within the major are taught by full-time faculty, not teaching assistants, as is the case at many other schools. Iona’s commitment to small class sizes ensures that you will benefit from personalized attention that is paramount to student success.

Mathematics alumni make a difference in the world

Clare Boothe Luce Program

Henry Luce Foundation logo
Since its first grants in 1989, the Clare Boothe Luce Program (CBL) has become the single most significant source of private support for women in science, mathematics and engineering. Clare Boothe Luce, the widow of Henry R. Luce, was a playwright, journalist, U.S. Ambassador to Italy, and the first woman elected to Congress from Connecticut. In her bequest establishing this program, she sought "to encourage women to enter, study, graduate, and teach” in science, mathematics and engineering." See more information on the national program.
