Mathematicians seek to make sense of the natural world by recognizing patterns. They establish theorems confirming their discoveries using the techniques of logic. As a Mathematics major, you will work closely with your professors to learn problem solving methods, develop your own conjectures and mathematically prove your conjectures using logical reasoning. When you graduate with a degree in mathematics, you will be well prepared either to begin a career in industry or to continue your mathematical studies in a graduate program.
Internships can be an invaluable part of your education. Mathematics students can gain work experience, as well as develop and refine future career goals. Learn more.
Mathematics faculty members like to engage in independent studies and research projects with students. Learn more.
