# UNDERGRADUATE: General Info

Mathematics is perhaps the oldest discipline studied by man, and over the centuries remains one of the most fascinating and interesting. Mathematics has long been an important component of the physical sciences and engineering, and in more recent time has become a necessary tool in a growing number of disciplines, particularly in economics, biology, and information technology. We offer a choice of paths that will enable students to prepare for a future in which mathematics will play an increasingly important role.
