Undergraduate Program
Mathematics is the principal language of modern science and technology. In such diverse areas as physics, engineering, economics, computer science, and biology, much of the subject matter is presented in mathematical terms. In addition, mathematical techniques are now being used in many areas which formerly were nonmathematical; for example, history, political science, psychology, and medicine.
Some students are drawn to mathematics because of the beauty they find in its structure and logic, others because it allows a deeper understanding of an allied area of study.
