    Math is the universal language. If you are interested in learning more about this language, then our applied mathematics major may be a great choice for you.

    As an applied mathematics major, you'll use math to understand real-world problems like population growth and AIDS-related issues. You'll work on some interesting projects: Ranking sports teams. Looking into renewable energy alternatives. Investing. You may even get a chance to co-write a paper with one of your professors. And get it published in a math journal. Think how good that will look on a resume.

    And, there are many career options for math graduates. With the knowledge that you'll have, you'll be needed in many areas: Science and technology. Banking. Civil service. The computer industry. Or, you can go to graduate school to earn a master's or doctoral degree.
