Mathematicians are problem solvers -- investigating problems, formulating questions, determining applicable mathematics, solving problems and communicating solutions. This major prepares you for the growing importance of analyzing and understanding data and statistics. You can choose the bachelor of arts in mathematics to focus more on theory, or the bachelor of science in applied mathematics to examine practical applications in science and operations research. Small classes provide you with individual attention from professors who actively involve you in the learning process.
