Math equations

Learn at a mathematical powerhouse. We offer strong and flexible programs at all degree levels.

Students majoring in mathematics take courses in the logical foundations of mathematics, the calculus sequence, matrix algebra, and discrete mathematics. Majors choose from a concentration of applied, traditional, or actuarial mathematics. Both the BA and the BS in mathematics will allow entry to advanced studies or career opportunities as diverse as the fields to which mathematics is applied. The metro region of Washington, D.C. is a particularly fertile area for related job opportunities, including consulting, teaching, and government.

Mason offers a vibrant graduate mathematics program that awards MS and PhD degrees. Students can specialize in a diverse selection of areas in pure, applied and computational mathematics.
