Mathematics Major (MAT)
Mathematics is the art of creating, recognizing, and analyzing abstract quantitative and geometrical structures. Students who pursue this course of study are trained to solve theoretical and practical problems and to communicate their solutions effectively.
Accordingly, graduates of the Math/Physics/Computer Science department will:
demonstrate knowledge of basic content appropriate to mathematics;
communicate precisely and effectively on quantitative matters;
perform basic mathematical modeling and interpret the results in terms of the phenomena being modeled; and
read mathematical material, interpret correctly what has been read, and apply it correctly.
This training provides a foundation for further graduate and professional study in many fields as well as for employment in business and industry.
