# Major in Mathematics

Mathematics is the language of problem solving. It is at the heart of all science and technology (applied mathematics) but it is also a beautiful logic all of its own (pure mathematics).

- Do I find solving a math problem challenging and rewarding?
- Am I able to succeed in math courses without too much of a struggle?

Then a major or minor in mathematics may be right for you.

Mathematics is the common theme among most of the top-paying careers.
