Others study it because they will work in a mathematics-related field, such as finance, statistics, physics, engineering, chemistry – the list goes on.

"I was talking with a friend of mine who attends UIC, and he was surprised at the topics that we covered in my Calculus II class at COD that he never learned until later classes. The education provided at COD is first-rate and even better in some areas when compared to big universities. I'm getting a quality yet affordable education at College of DuPage."

"COD gave me the opportunity to challenge myself and learn more while still a full-time high school student. This enabled me to 'hit the ground running' in my full-time studies at Vanderbilt without having to forgo the high school experience which aided in my personal development."Read Spotlight
