Students majoring in mathematics may develop breadth and depth in theoretical and applied areas of mathematics, including computer mathematics. They may prepare for careers in teaching, industry, or government. After graduation from York College, the mathematics major may pursue graduate studies toward an advanced degree as a full-time student, or as a part-time student while working in his or her chosen career.
