Mathematics is important in the life of every individual. Mathematics is central for providing experiences to ensure that students gain "proficiency in analytical reasoning and computational skills" necessary for survival in a "technological society" as well as understanding connections between mathematics and other disciplines. The Mathematics faculty has contact with every Fisk student, whether in the mission of general education, teacher education, or the mathematical education of majors and joint majors. Course offerings are academically challenging, but mathematics faculty operate under a shared belief that all students can learn mathematics. Clearly, mathematics has special responsibility for support to other disciplines, such as those in the natural or social sciences and business administration, as well as to students who select mathematics as a single or joint major.
Our academic disciplines allow you to specialize your focus to one area of interest. They are a part of your transition into higher education which involves being aware that each discipline is a distinct discourse community with specific vocabularies, styles, and modes of communication.

I came to Fisk University because it is one of the top HBCUs in the country and I wanted a challenge. I wanted to go to a black school that would give me a great experience while also giving me a great education and great opportunities. When I came on a campus visit I felt a true family vibe. I love how connected everyone is from the students to the professors and all of the staff. I think at Fisk, we do a good job of making sure everyone is okay in every way. Once I graduate, I plan on staying in Nashville and I want to work for a finance company in the marketing department.
