To study mathematics is to study the underpinnings of all intellectual pursuits. Mathematics is the language of patterns. If you can find a pattern in something—be it science, art, finance or sports—then you can use mathematics to describe it and perhaps predict what will happen next. This makes mathematics an incredibly powerful tool for analyzing the world around us. Our brains are shaped to find patterns everywhere. The building in which you are sitting, the computer you are using, the way you are breathing: All have an intimately mathematical nature.
Studying mathematics at Emmanuel College provides solid foundation for employment in the business world, as a teacher, and for graduate or professional school.
