The Mathematics sequence is designed to meet the curricular guidelines of national mathematics organizations while giving the student the flexibility to further explore other aspects of mathematics or related areas while working toward their degree. Combining one's study of mathematics with a related field enhances employability when the student graduates.

Why Study Mathematics?

Mathematics is a discipline that is both broad in its many areas of study and its applications as well as fascinating in the types of questions that are asked about these areas. As our society becomes more quantitative, more and more disciplines are using mathematics more intensively. For example, the National Academy of Sciences now considers even biology a mathematically intensive discipline. As such, the demand for people trained in mathematically intensive disciplines is expected to continue to increase for the foreseeable future.
