Solve complex problems with numbers

If you enjoy numbers, problem-solving and analyzing data, mathematics is a major for you. You can become a financial analyst evaluating economic conditions to help a corporation make smart business decisions, or an actuary using data to predict health trends for an insurance company. Mathematicians work with chemical engineers to develop mathematical models that further research and development of products, and applied mathematicians collaborate with industrial designers to create the best aerodynamic conditions when designing airplanes, structures or cars.

In the program, you learn about the newest technological innovations used in mathematics and learn how to communicate your research effectively. You gain knowledge and skills you can use in fields such as science, government, business and education. You choose courses in your area of interest — such as teaching, statistics or actuarial studies — and graduate prepared to pursue an advanced degree.
