## What will you do as a mathematics major?

The mathematics major encompasses both theory and applications of mathematics. You will have the opportunity to study in a broad spectrum of fields ranging from areas in pure mathematics such as algebra, real analysis, topology, probability and geometry to applied mathematical areas such as mathematical software, computational models and methods, mathematical biology, statistics and actuarial mathematics. Many mathematics majors also major or minor in engineering or the physical, biological or social sciences. You can complete the standard degree path or choose one of four different options in **applied and computational mathematics**, **mathematical biology**, **statistics** and **secondary teaching emphasis** to gain specialization in your area of interest and achieve your career objectives.
