Understanding our physical world requires an understanding of mathematics. Not only a tool for engineers and physical scientists, a thorough understanding of math and its applications is critical in business, economics, and even the social sciences. Mathematics forms a foundation for all technical disciplines; a major in math prepares students for careers or graduate study in many subjects. The department offers courses in pure and applied math, probability and statistics, computational math, engineering math, and math education. A math major, paired with a carefully chosen minor, is excellent preparation for a variety of career paths. Few jobs actually call for a mathematician; jobs are more likely to have titles such as analyst or engineer.
