The major in mathematics includes courses in pure and applied mathematics, offering a broad and in-depth foundation for students with diverse interests and backgrounds. All courses in the curriculum develop logical thinking, quantitative reasoning, and deductive analysis, making majors and minors highly attractive to graduate schools and employers in industry.
Combined with complementary course work, a mathematics major gives strong preparation for graduate study in an increasingly wide variety of disciplines. These include biostatistics, computer science, economics, forestry, genetics, meteorology, operations research, physics, psychology, pure and applied mathematics, sociology, and most engineering fields.
Career opportunities for those with a mathematics major are equally varied. These include positions in the fields of actuarial science, banking and financial services, communications, computer science, consulting, government, health services, management, public policy, research organizations, utilities, and transportation.
