Why Quantitativ​e Reasoning?

​Quantitative reasoning (QR) skills are essential in the modern world. Every professional career demands some ability to understand presentations of quantitative data, analyze them and draw reasonable conclusions, and utilize such data in making arguments. A comprehensive liberal arts education must improve students’ appreciation of the value of quantitative approaches to understanding and modes of thought. This requirement offers students the flexibility of acquiring QR in a variety of ways most suitable to their academic objectives.
