As part of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences prepares students for careers as engineers, actuaries, scientists, educators, and technicians, while concurrently striving to inspire our students to love the subject itself. 

The study of Mathematics is a balancing act between application and theory. Mathematicians enjoy pattern seeking, conjecture making, and articulate arguments, and we want our graduates to go into the world motivated by curiosity and armed with the skills that are hallmarks of mathematicians.

Alumni Success Story

Meet a Mathematics Alum

Andrew Casanova
Andrew Casanova '14

Misericordia was the place where I made some of my biggest mistakes, but also some of my fondest memories. My favorite memories come from the teachers, staff and friends I made while I was there. I created the best memories from when I was a Resident Assistant, Campus Tour Guide, Orientation leader and Campus Ministry leader. Those leadership roles allowed me to immerse myself in the Misericordia culture.

Misericordia taught me to challenge myself even with all my doubts and worries telling me I was not good enough. The support I had from across campus gave me the confidence to know my worth and to strive for excellence no matter how hard things got. 

As a Data Scientist, I have had wonderful opportunities working for the government on projects using Big Data, developing applications for the Navy, and more recently, an opportunity to work for the Intelligence Community.

Mathematics Department News

Steven Tedford


Dr. Steven Tedford, Professor of Mathematics and Department Chair, wins the Bruckman Prize

The Bruckman Prize is named in honor of Paul Bruckman who had a long and distinguished association with Fibonacci numbers. Two prizes are awarded each even-numbered year commencing with 2016 for papers which develop a new approach or expand results in the area of generalized Fibonacci numbers and related areas of mathematics. The program is funded by a grant from George A. Hisert of Berkeley, California.

Tania Hazra


Dr. Tania Hazra, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, has been named a Project NExT Fellow through the MAA (Mathematical Association of America)

Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) is a professional development program for new or recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences. It addresses all aspects of an academic career: improving the teaching and learning of mathematics, engaging in research and scholarship, finding exciting and interesting service opportunities, and participating in professional activities. It also provides the participants with a network of peers and mentors as they assume these responsibilities. Since 1994 there have been over 1700 Fellows, who have appeared in all capacities in the academic mathematical profession.

Double Major

Thanks to the high number of electives within the mathematics major, many students double major in another field, most commonly a science, but also disciplines within the humanities.

The Mathematics major combines well with others majors like Statistics or Computer Science.

We are glad that so many students opt to double major, as we believe that this contributes to a well-rounded education that not only prepares students for a variety of careers, but also shapes students into articulate and hospitable citizens.

I would not be where I am today without Misericordia and our wonderful math department. Our professors gave me the confidence I needed as an incoming freshman that has strengthened my performance in the classroom and overall experience.
