Why Study Mathematics?

Do you consider yourself logical and analytical? Do you enjoy problem solving? Then you should consider a degree in Mathematics.

USF’s Mathematics program teaches traditional math, with a little history, logic, physics, and technology-based problem solving. Your class work will let you explore and analyze – all while you build skills to prepare you for a rapidly growing career field.

But, is it right for me?

We asked our professors and they said mathematicians:

  • Enjoy working with detailed information
  • Have strong logic and analytical skills
  • Like to solve problems
  • Can easily use new technology
