BA MAJOR & MINOR

## What You’ll Study

Most people think of math as arithmetic, algebra, and maybe some geometry. Mathematics is so much more diverse! Mathematicians employ mind-stretching creativity, disciplined critical thinking, and logical structures to solve problems and explore new ways of thinking.

Mathematicians are not number crunchers, they are *truth* crunchers.

Whether you want to unlock the secrets of particle physics, genetics, or artificial intelligence, mathematics is the doorway to some of the most exciting careers out there.

As a math major, you will progress from procedural/computational understanding of mathematics to a broad understanding encompassing logical reasoning, generalization, abstraction, and formal proof to the standards of the Mathematical Association of America. As you learn, you will begin to see the beauty and wide utility of mathematics. You will gain skills, confidence, and quantitative literacy. Most of all, you’ll find that learning is addictive and fun — the habit of a lifetime.
