Saint Mary's Testimonials
“Having graduated from Saint Mary's as a Math major with a concentration in Computer Science, I have been lucky enough to spend the last year working as a Data Analyst for British Airways in Europe. The impact of the wonderful math professors at Saint Mary's is easily seen in the skill set they have prepared me with, enabling me to do my job. However, I must admit that a huge advantage has come from the liberal arts approach that Saint Mary's applies in every class setting, instilling an effective communication which sits at the core of every report, analysis, and presentation I do.”
