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.
- Learn about our majors and minor.
- See what our faculty's interests are.
- Browse the numerous and categorized resources for math majors.
