The Mathematics Department dates back to the original Charter of the College. Mathematics was represented by one of the six Masters or Professors, and when the full faculty was assembled in 1729, the original masterships were in Divinity, Philosophy, Oriental Languages, Mathematics, the Grammar School and the Indian School. The first professor on record was Hugh Jones, who was on the faculty from 1716-1729. He is the namesake of the present site of the department: the first floor of Hugh Jones Hall.
The Department of Mathematics undergraduate program offers a major and a minor in Mathematics. Majors may choose from three concentrations. Mathematics is a major component of several graduate programs including Computational Operations Research, Computer Science, and Applied Science.
