The Mathematics Major
Mathematics is the language of nature — the Rosetta stone by which we come to understand the inner structure and form of our universe. It is also the language of computers — the key to the Information Age, which is just beginning. As a tool for understanding the world, it is perhaps the oldest and most enduring — and still, today, one of the most dynamic and exciting. Students in the Mathematics major develop an understanding of mathematics as a vital tool of the mind.
The Mathematics major is both rigorous and flexible. It provides students a rigorous foundation upon which to pursue graduate studies in mathematics or professional training in areas such as law or engineering, while permitting them the flexibility to pursue minors in other liberal arts disciplines and to prepare themselves to teach in secondary school. Graduates receive the Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics.
