The Department of Mathematics at UW-Eau Claire offers the best features of both a small liberal arts college and a large university. We do this by providing a core mathematics curriculum that is supplemented by a variety of electives for individuals with specific interests.

Outside the classroom, undergraduates frequently collaborate with faculty on research problems. This "valued-added" high impact practice supplements our rigorous classroom curriculum.
