Mathematics has traditionally been the language of science and now plays a vital role in the social sciences and business as well. Every field in which quantitative activity is found requires that its workers have a strong background in mathematics. A student well-versed in mathematics will find their skills of use in almost any profession.

Although mathematics is studied for its applications, it also attracts many who are interested in its aesthetic and creative side. A study of mathematics improves one's ability to think about abstract concepts, to conceptualize about hypothetical structures, to reach logical conclusions, and to consider many solution techniques when problem solving.

## Majors/Emphases

Students may elect one of four emphases in the mathematics major. Emphases consist of the CORE courses and an additional 18 – 20 units of required or elective courses in the emphasis. In addition, students majoring in mathematics must complete a writing requirement (ENGLISH 370 or ENGLISH 372), a computer science requirement^{1}, and the Math Exit Interview milestone requirement. An approved minor is required with each emphasis.

^{1} | There is no Computer Science requirement for the Secondary Education Emphasis. |

For more information on the different emphases including 4-year plans and Math Major FAQ, please visit the department's website: http://www.uww.edu/cls/departments/math.
