Mathematics Major

As a mathematics major, you will find that math is not as much about numbers as it is the study of patterns and structure. Beyond solving equations, you will use mathematical skills to reason through and analyze information in an exciting field that is constantly growing and changing.

Additionally, you will develop the creativity necessary to find connections amid the logical framework. Through this analysis and application you will practice critical thinking and gain a better understanding of the world. Furthermore, our mathematics major allows you to develop a firm spiritual and moral foundation. Read more.
