Math is everywhere, offering broad career choices. Any complex system can be analyzed using mathematics, which means math arises in health care, business, marketing and even entertainment. Mathematics is much more than simple arithmetic and equations; it is the study of abstract structures, space, change and the interrelations of these concepts. Mathematicians work to address some of science and society's most pressing questions. Their work bridges the gaps between scientific disciplines and provides a framework for considering problems in their purest, most theoretical form.
Freshmen: You will begin your studies with preparatory courses in mathematics, engineering or computer science, physics and statistics.
Transfer Students: The UC Transfer Pathway for this major strongly recommends that all lower-division requirements (equivalent to the first two years of courses) be completed prior to transferring.
At the upper division level, you may choose to focus your studies on one of three areas: preparation for graduate study in mathematics, computational and applied mathematics or mathematics for secondary (middle or high school) teaching. You may choose to earn an A.B. degree, which allows you more flexibility to take courses outside your major, or a B.S. degree, which provides more focused instruction in mathematics.
