Why Study Math?
Mathematics is one of the oldest and most fundamental sciences and a demanding major. But even those who love the challenge of math need to make a living after they graduate. Mathematicians need to have good reasoning ability in order to identify, analyze, and apply basic logical principles to technical problems. This skill can be used in a large number of professional situations so those with a degree in mathematics are in demand for a great variety of occupations.
