Mathematics can solve many problems. Mathematics is the “magic” behind computers and all the incredible things they achieve. Science is built on mathematics (and everything is built on science). Mathematics can save lives—providing critical models in engineering and medicine and countless other fields. Mathematical principals can be used explain natural phenomena and theological perspectives. Learning to solve problems pragmatically yet critically will prepare you to make a difference in many different fields. The Interdisciplinary major presents a unique opportunity for students to combine studies of two liberal arts areas and to develop, in a structured way, the interrelations between these different fields of knowledge.
- Solve real-world problems using logic and reason.
- Culminate your experience with a senior capstone that summarizes your knowledge.
- Connect mathematical concepts with others areas knowledge.
- Learn from experienced professors who genuinely care about your success.
- Because this program focuses on application and use, everyone who majors in the Mathematics ID program will also take several courses in a second math-related field.
Mathematics Interdisciplinary Major
This program can be combined with any of the following areas:
- Computer Science
- Physical Science
The capstone experience is a mathematics project with a companion research paper. Before applying, students:
- Should have a grade of B- or better in Mathematics 151: Calculus II, or an AP equivalent, OR
- Should have a grade of C+ or better in the two previous 150+ level mathematics courses taken
