Majors and Minors

Mathematics is the human expression of pattern and regularity in the world.  It involves the study of structures and relationships of mathematical objects, including numbers, shapes, functions, and data. Logical reasoning and problem-solving are the backbone of mathematics.

Our department is committed to empowering students to develop mathematical reasoning and to appreciate the structure and beauty of the discipline.
