Mathematics forms the cornerstone of the sciences, playing a powerful dual role as both a pure science and a tool for solving problems and modeling phenomena in other disciplines. For example, mathematics allows us to build efficient algorithms in computing, understand rare events in financial markets, model the physical universe, develop predictions for climate science, map and study the human genome, and understand the structure of the human brain. Mathematics draws vitality from questions arising in the natural world, as well as applications to industry and technology, and yet it is grounded in rigor and abstraction.
The Mathematics major is designed to give comprehensive training in both mathematics and its applications to prepare you for a career or more advanced degree programs. Courses required for the Mathematics major provide essential training and experience in analysis, algebra, differential equations, and probability theory. Mathematics elective courses emphasize numerous topics of pure and applied mathematics, including mathematics of finance, numerical analysis, partial differential equations, differential geometry, scientific computing, and number theory.
