Mathematics provides much of the language and quantitative underpinnings of the natural and social sciences — mathematical scientists built the foundation for modern computational and computer science and developed many of the most-used tools in business management. Whether you are drawn to the abstract beauty of theoretical math or the problem-solving elegance of applied math, our Mathematical Sciences program has a place for you. Here, thinkers and challengers are exploring and defining mathematics. Our faculty are advancing the leading edge of science, conducting research in an array of fields. The collaborative nature of CMU means we work across disciplines to support real-world applications.
