Mathematics and computer science give two complementary ways to engage with our modern world.
We offer courses with topics from timeless classics to emerging new fields. Our small class sizes encourage personal attention from professors and many of our students find connections to Silicon Valley companies. Our award-winning faculty members conduct research in diverse fields, and encourage undergraduate researchers to join them on the frontier of discovery. Our students go on to satisfying careers in the many sub-disciplines of mathematics and computer science, whether they pursue graduate study or start careers directly after graduation. Join us!
