Mathematics can be pursued as a scholarly discipline of an especially elegant kind (a creative art form) or it can be treated as a valuable tool in an applied discipline.

The program for mathematics majors is designed to provide a solid foundation in the theoretical and applied aspects of mathematics necessary for a variety of professional careers. Students can choose their curricula so as to emphasize that role of mathematics which will be useful to them in later years.

Doctoral programs in Mathematics Education and Engineering and Applied Science are also offered.
