About the Program

All classes for math majors beyond calculus have 40 students or fewer, and many upper-level classes have fewer than 25 students; all professors have office hours, so students have many opportunities for individual contact with their professors. In addition, the math curriculum is flexible enough that students can take classes in other interest areas or pursue double major or a minor without too much difficulty. Math specializations include:

  • Applied mathematics
  • Business mathematics
  • Mathematics
  • Mathematics teaching
  • Mathematics with computer sciences option
  • Mathematics with statistics option
  • Operations research

Important note: When applying for any specialization within Mathematics, select “Mathematics” as your major. You will have the opportunity to specialize as you progress through the curriculum.
