Mathematics is the study of pattern, structure, and change. Although it is one of the most ancient disciplines, new mathematics is being created every day. It can be found in everything from Internet security, to green energy technology, to Wall Street investment strategies.
Classes in Western's Department of Mathematics emphasize analytical thinking and problem-solving skills that will serve you well not just in mathematics, but in many other careers, including law, business, and a range of technical fields. Mathematics students benefit from small class sizes, which allow a high level of interaction with faculty.
Compared to the BA and BS Mathematics programs this major requires that each student take a carefully selected sequence of courses focusing on a particular area of application of mathematics.
