Associate Professor Nancy Neudauer Named Fulbright Specialist Award Recipient


This is a very exciting time in mathematics: Advances in new technologies, telecommunications and mathematical biology have provided fertile ground for the application of mathematics in these and emerging fields. As a result, several mathematical disciplines are quickly changing to adapt. Students with strong mathematical backgrounds are in high demand.

Pacific University provides a mathematics program that is both broad and deep. This, together with small class sizes and close interaction with the faculty, ensures that students are ready to enter a wide variety of careers and post-graduate programs. Recent graduates have entered distinguished graduate programs and careers in financial mathematics, computer programming, engineering, teaching, law and, of course, mathematics.

Program Highlights

  • Extensive individualized student-faculty interaction in an informal atmosphere and close interaction with professors on research projects
  • Abundance of extracurricular opportunities—Math Club, International Mathematical Modeling Competition, Putnam Exam Teams, a colloquium series, social events and service opportunities
  • Excellent facilities, including a computer lab outfitted with statistical and mathematical software, a mathematical games library and space for each student’s own web page
  • Strong professors effective at working together in a team-oriented environment
