Are you interested in a Mathematics Major?
One of the oldest and most fundamental sciences, the work of Mathematicians falls into into two broad classes—theoretical (pure) mathematics and applied mathematics.
As mathematics is the foundation on which so many other academic disciplines are built, the number of workers using mathematical techniques is much greater than the number formally called mathematicians. Engineers, computer scientists, physicists, and economists are among the careers who use mathematics extensively.
Good reasoning skills to identify, analyze, and apply basic principles to technical problems are important for mathematicians. Also important are communication skills, as mathematicians must be able to interact and discuss proposed solutions with people who may not have an extensive background in mathematics.
