Why Study Math?
The field of mathematics sits midway between the sciences and the humanities. Like the sciences, mathematical thought is very analytical, precise, and rigorous. But like the arts and humanities, mathematics is about exploring places of incredible grace and beauty, some of which can only be accessed through the power of imagination. You can explore geometry in ten-dimensional space, learn about advanced and exotic number systems, and study statistical techniques for finding patterns in data sets, all in a supportive and collaborative environment.
Major in Mathematics
Students majoring in mathematics can choose from three different tracks.
Accelerated Master’s Program
Students can begin working toward a master’s degree in mathematics while still finishing their bachelor’s degree. Our accelerated master’s program allows you to complete a bachelor’s degree in four years and a master’s degree in one additional year.
Minor in Mathematics
The Math minor is intended for any student, regardless of major, with a strong interest in mathematics. Each student’s minor program is individually constructed in consultation with an advisor.
