Mathematics is the study of the various branches of pure and applied math. Given its almost unlimited applications to the real world, mathematics is an essential ingredient of general education, and will become even more so in the future.
WHY MATHEMATICS AT GLENDON
It is an important practical tool in humanities and social sciences, such as economics, political science, psychology, and sociology. Pure math will give you a foundation in modern analysis, algebra, and topology, and how to apply these areas to other branches of science. Applied math involves operations research, statistics, and the mathematics of investment. In Glendon’s program, you can also explore the computational aspects of modern math through mathematical software.
