College of Arts and Sciences Mathematics Major

Mathematics is an independent field of study valued for precision of thought and intrinsic beauty, as well as a rich source of techniques and methods with infinite practical applications. The department takes great pride in making sure that both of these aspects of mathematics are well represented in the curriculum. Students are encouraged to pursue their talent for finding innovative solutions to complex problems. Many also acquire expertise in other fields, such as physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, engineering, and computer science.

UVM's Mathematics and Statistics Department keeps its classes small, allowing close student-faculty interactions. Talented faculty members teach all levels, from introductory to advanced courses, while also editing major international journals, engaging in research, and writing fundamental textbooks used all over the world. Students go into such diverse fields as computer science, business, law, and government organizations such as the National Security Agency.

Majors may pursue their degrees either through the University's College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (B.S.) or the College of Arts and Sciences (B.A.).
