Technologies come and go, but mathematics is eternal. The mathematics department provides the right blend of theory and application for now, next year, and always.
The major prepares students for graduate studies or employment in many quantitative fields. A student may prepare for teaching high school mathematics by selecting the math-ed option. (Students interested in this option should consult with the department advisor as soon as possible, preferably before the start of classes). The Departments of Mathematics and Economics offer a joint major.
