The possibilities are infinite.
Does your mind work in numerical ways? Does the sight of a complex math problem cause you to reach for the nearest pencil? Are you fascinated by statistics, patterns, and formulas? Do you see the crucial role of numbers at the core of just about everything?
Lesley’s mathematics major will prepare you for a deep understanding of mathematics and its varied applications across many fields, then help you decide how and where you can take it. You'll gain hands on learning at places like the Museum of Science, Boston Financial, New England Aquarium, Boston Consulting Group, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, and many more, to help you decide on your path.
Mathematics majors often go into the business and finance worlds, with Wall Street increasingly putting a premium on those who can analyze and predict the direction of stocks, commodities, foreign exchanges and more.
