Mathematics

Mathematics is the abstract study of pattern and structure. Areas of mathematics include arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, and various other theoretical and applied subjects.  Mathematics is the foundation for many fields of study, including biological, physical, computer, behavioral, and social sciences, as well as engineering. Students may take mathematics courses to prepare for a mathematics major, to meet prerequisites in related disciplines, or to fulfill general education requirements.

Career options for mathematics majors include actuary, accountant, mathematician, statistician, teacher, and work in various computer-related fields.
