The science of patterns
Mathematicians study patterns: from the distribution of prime numbers to the distribution of galaxies, from the shapes of soap films to the structure of musical compositions. While an ancient discipline, mathematics continues to develop at rapid pace. It is central to all STEM fields and is increasingly important in the social sciences, business and even the arts.
Whether you become a mathematician or statistician, you’ll gain a strong foundation at Susquehanna to succeed in your career. You’ll have the benefit of collaborating on research with faculty experts, who will know you from small class sizes. In the summer, you can earn academic credit for internships or conduct research on campus or at a National Science Foundation site. As a senior, you’ll spend a semester or a year researching in depth a topic of interest to you, or pursue your own original research guided by a faculty mentor.
We make it seamless for you to double or even triple major in mathematics, physics or computer science. Degrees in economics, finance and philosophy also pair well with mathematics. With our 3+2 dual-degree engineering option, you can earn dual degrees: a mathematics bachelor’s degree from Susquehanna and an applied mathematics or engineering degree from an ABET-accredited partner university. You can pursue a graduate degree or a law degree, as law schools favor math students with an analytical background.
