 Optional Cybersecurity Concentration
The department offers three majors, two minors, and one optional cybersecurity concentration, all with several tracks depending on individual student interests. Entry into the mathematical sciences curriculum is determined by placement or consultation with the department.
At the heart of the department’s curriculum is the development of conceptual and computational intuition, sophistication in the analysis of complicated structures, and, most importantly, the interplay of these two with broadly based sets of technical skills and techniques. Advice about individual situations can be obtained from the department.
