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.
Whether you want to study the secrets of genetics, solar energy, or machine learning, mathematics is the doorway to some of the most exciting careers in the world.
As a math major, you will progress from a procedural and computational understanding of mathematics to a broad understanding encompassing logical reasoning, generalization, abstraction, and formal proof. As you learn, you will begin to see the beauty and wide utility of mathematics and its applications. Most of all, you’ll find that learning is addictive and fun — the habit of a lifetime.
