# Undergraduate Program

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics! We have about 500 math majors and 100 math minors.

The undergraduate major in mathematics is an introduction to both the foundations and the frontiers of the discipline, and an opportunity to learn about its diverse applications. Students can study the grand theories of algebra, analysis, and topology which dominated mathematics research and teaching for the first two thirds of the twentieth century. These traditional areas have now been supplemented by major developments in other mathematical sciences--in number theory, logic, statistics, operations research, probability, computation, geometry, and combinatorics.

If you are having difficulty registering for a MATH course, you may need a Math Placement score. Please visit the Math Placement page for more information.
