Mathematics is part of the foundation of all the sciences, engineering, statistics, and many social sciences.  A degree in mathematics provides one with both the applied mathematics knowledge necessary to engage in these disciplines, and formal reasoning skills that can be applied in any area.  The major is well suited for those interested in mathematics alone, or for those looking to supplement another major.  Our students go on to jobs or further study in all the above disciplines, as well as many others (medical school or law school, for instance).
