We athletes are always pushed to do more, do better, and be stronger - and I love it.

Mathematical and Physical Sciences

The majors in mathematical and physical sciences combine purely logical and analytical reasoning, as exemplified by mathematics and computer science, with the study of nature at its most fundamental, the science of physics.

In the past, human curiosity about the phenomena of science and engineering has spurred the creation of new mathematics. Today, this dialogue is not only between mathematics and the physical sciences, but includes economics, the social sciences, and research into artificial intelligence. Computer research is yielding powerful new methods of analysis and visualization, with significant impact on mathematics and the physical sciences. The way is now being paved for a similar computer-spurred revolution in the rest of the liberal arts.

Majors within the Program

Computer Science

With the theory and application of computers, gain insight into computer research, which is yielding powerful new methods of analysis and visualization. Explore the significant impact of computers on mathematics and the physical sciences.

Mathematics

Appreciate the power and beauty in the logic of mathematical  
structure and thought. Develop the ability to bring the power of mathematics to  
the understanding and solution of problems in a variety of fields.

Physics

Study the fundamental laws of nature through investigation and  
mathematical formulation. Explore the roles of computers in the sciences and  
interdisciplinary sciences.
