Technologies come and go, but mathematics is eternal.
Mathematician. Computer scientist. Systems analyst. Economist. Math teacher. The career possibilities for a degree in mathematics from Fordham are vast. That’s because an understanding of mathematical theory and application—in just the right academic blend—is essential to so many modern technical careers. These are timeless concepts with practical uses.
You will learn a wide spectrum of ideas, all of them based in the art of logical reasoning and clear expression. You’ll learn math’s vast applicability, from describing the universe to making informed financial analysis. In the process you’ll come to understand not only the many uses of mathematics, but its sheer beauty.
You’ll learn more than mathematics here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, literature, languages, ethics, science, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
We want you to excel in your field—and as a human being.
