Mathematics is much more than working with numbers and solving equations. It underlies many daily decisions, is crucial to thinking critically about what we read and hear in the media, is the language of science and technology, and lies behind the games we play and the work we do. Mathematical and quantitative thinking is incorporated across the curriculum. You’ll find it woven into programs and courses involving science, sociology, psychology, economics, linguistics, and the arts. We also offer opportunities to study mathematics as a discipline in its own right: both pure and applied and from beginning to advanced.
