Other Mathematics & Statistics Options
Our faculty are nationally recognized teacher-scholars who can make numbers do amazing things: quantify cancer growth, identify unknown authors, elucidate three-dimensional space, innovate teaching practice. They extend this passion for their work into close mentorship of undergraduates. Their doors are always open, and our lounge is always full of students.
Biostatistics? Knot theory? Numerical simulations? Financial analysis? Pedagogical practice? Students who want to tackle research in a specialized area have our support—and the expert guidance of a faculty mentor. We work closely with each student to turn individual goals, including research, internships, or independent study, into reality.
Wide Career Choices
Math and statistics skills are increasingly demanded in our data-driven world. Many of our majors enter the workforce as analysts, actuaries, and statisticians. Others teach mathematics or pursue graduate studies. See yourself in law, medicine, engineering, or business? Math majors score big on entrance exams for graduate and professional schools.
