The science of mathematics is fundamental to many disciplines and an integral part of a liberal arts education. Quantitative skills such as data analysis, problem solving, pattern recognition and mathematical modeling are increasingly vital to contemporary professions. Entry-level mathematics courses introduce students to basic concepts and tools that are essential to education. Upper-level courses provide students with the opportunity to explore mathematical topics in greater depth.

## Declaration of Major in Mathematics
