Mathematics lies at the heart of the liberal arts—based in abstraction and logical reasoning, mathematics is both a body of knowledge and an elegant and useful way of perceiving our world. Through mathematics, we can distill and describe the otherwise hidden patterns and relations among things. Because of this, mathematics finds ubiquitous application, from the natural and social sciences to the humanities and the arts. Precise abstraction and quantification play an increasingly important role in these diverse areas, and the study of mathematics can provide a foundation for any of them.
Mathematics is also available as a Minor.
Data Science Minor
Data science combines aspects of computer science, applied mathematics and statistics.
Statistics Major and Minor
Statistics is the practice of working with data using computational and quantitative techniques: collecting, organizing, modeling, analyzing, summarizing, and visualizing, often in order to make well-founded inferences or predictions from samples.
