Mathematics is of ever-increasing importance to our society and everyday life. It has long been the language of science and technology and provides a rich source of methods for analyzing and solving problems encountered in the physical world. Today, mathematics is essential in virtually all fields of human endeavor, including business, the arts, and the social sciences. The major programs provide flexibility with elective courses. Students may take advantage of a range of interdisciplinary programs and may join a major in mathematics with one in such fields as computer science, physics, and biology. Exceptional students are accepted into the Honors Program and have the option to enroll in honors sections of several of their mathematics courses. All math majors may benefit from co?op opportunities in the scientific and business communities in Boston and elsewhere. Many of the mathematics courses that we offer use computers for visualization, modeling, and numerical approximation. Students planning to teach secondary-school mathematics must major in mathematics and take a specific minor in education, which includes course work and student teaching. Mathematical training may lead to opportunities in applied research (natural sciences, engineering, economics, management, computer science) as well as in mathematical research, teaching, or industry.
