Mathematical Science Major
What is Mathematical Science?
Mathematical Science is the application of mathematics and statistics to understanding and solving problems faced in every field of science, arts and industry. Mathematical Science is ideal for students who love mathematics and statistics and want to see how they are applied in realworld settings. Mathematicians and Statisticians are hired in a wide range of fields and industries and studying mathematical science allows you to gain both technical and practical training.
