Mathematics is the art of revealing truth through logical reasoning, and the science of applying such reasoning to further understanding the universe. In addition to being the backbone of scientific inquiry, the study of mathematics is an excellent way to prepare for a broad range of careers in such fields as business, government, industry, law, medicine, politics and teaching. You will find mathematics majors are employed as animators, benefits administrators, climate analysis, college professors, cryptologists, epidemiologists, forensic analysts, market researchers, pollsters, programmers, scientists, statisticians, among many, many others. Mathematics majors in the program, who may choose to focus either on abstract mathematics or on mathematical sciences, study mathematics in depth as preparation for graduate or for a career in mathematics or a related field.
