MATHEMATICS: "...the abstract deductive science of space, number, quantity, and arrangement...studied in its own right, or as applied to various branches of physics and other sciences..."
— Oxford English Dictionary
In keepinig with liberal arts traditions, Clark's mathematics major provides a solid education in mathematical principles for students who wish to apply mathematics in other fields and students who wish to pursue mathematics in graduate school. Clark mathematics majors have gone on to graduate school in pure mathematics, applied mathematics and computer science at such universities as Brown, Cornell, NYU (Courant Institute), and SUNY Stony Brook. Graduates are employed in the public and private sectors as statisticians, mathematical modelers and actuaries, as well as teachers from elementary to university level.
The creative work of mathematicians is everywhere around us.
Mathematicians are working hand in hand with computer scientists, engineers, scientists, and economists to improve and understand our world by:
- designing new more efficient cars
- faster planes
- sending people into space
- predicting the weather
- developing new medication
- preserving the environment
- or understanding our economy and the financial markets
