Mathematics, statistics, and computer science provide ways to describe the world we live in and our relationship to it.
*Computer Science is part of the Department of Mathematical Sciences.*
At Lewis & Clark, the mathematical sciences are an integral part of a liberal arts education. Mathematics, statistics, and computer science provide ways to describe the world we live in and our relationship to it. They are structural mechanisms providing context for speculation and discovery; important tools for illuminating theories and implementing techniques from other disciplines; and art forms exhibiting aesthetic values. Our department prides itself on fostering a diverse community of students and faculty, where everyone is welcomed and encouraged to engage deeply with the practice, passion, communication, and context of mathematical inquiry.
