Mathematics is perhaps the most fundamental tool we have to describe the universe. Numbers, formulas, and algorithms help us understand the rules that govern the natural world by explaining everything from the massive scale of planetary motion down to the behavior of subatomic particles. They help us to predict how businesses will develop, allowing us to make stock market predictions. They quantify human behavior through the social sciences. They advance technology through their roles in computing and programming.
The mathematics major offers rigorous classes in calculus, algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, and complex variables, among other subjects. Through it, you’ll earn a broad and solid education that will help you understand the world through quantitative processes.
