Is It for You?

Mathematics is a powerful problem-solving tool and a highly creative field of study that explains diverse phenomena such as the human nervous system, the evolution of life forms and the stock market. You’ll learn to identify patterns using logic, exacting principles and imagination, and will complete a thesis project. Further experiential learning opportunities include research in state-of-the-art labs, participation in student groups and seminars, an optional paid co-op and optional specializations in Computer Science and Economics.
