About the Mathematics Department

The Mathematics Department at NJCU prepares students for careers in a modern, complex society that has become increasingly dependent on mathematics. NJCU math students become mathematicians, teachers, scientists, researchers, technicians, managers, business leaders and more. A mathematics education is a solid foundation for careers that require problem solving and analytical thinking.

If your interest in math intersects with a passion for teaching, our teacher certification program or Master of Math Education might be the right path for you. Our attentive faculty and advisors can help you choose a program based on your interests and career goals. A math minor is an excellent way to complement many degree programs, particularly if you are considering graduate work in a discipline that involves quantitative research.

Mathematics Department faculty create a collaborative atmosphere where students and teachers are a community, and where learning is a lifelong enterprise.

The Math Club provides opportunities for math-minded students to get together, learn and have fun, and even offers a pre-finals workshop on how to get the most out your calculator. If you are a math student with a competitive edge, you can participate in a Math Club competition.

Hybrid Math Emporium

Summer 2022

This is an 18-day MATH program offered by NJCU that helps students complete their developmental and/or pre-requisites level MATH courses prior to the start of Fall 2022

How much does it cost?
Tuition is FREE but students must commit to the 18-day program as an investment in their education.

When does it run?
July 5th to August 3rd
(Monday through Thursday — No Friday classes) using a Hybrid mode. The program will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Students must attend in person on Mondays and Wednesdays in Karnoutsos Hall 4th  and 5th  floors and  online using zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Does this affect my Financial Aid?
No, actually this program helps you save your Financial Aid by giving you the opportunity to reduce the number of course hours required to complete your Math prerequisites.

How does it work?
New and continuing students will work on skill-building problems in Math. Upon completion, students will be assessed in Math basic skills. Students who complete the Math Emporium and pass the placement test will have the opportunity to eliminate up to 7 non-credit bearing hours of Math in the fall semester. Participants will begin the fall semester better prepared to meet the academic and social demands of college.
