Curriculum

Wellesley's mathematics curriculum offers something for everyone.

Many students take calculus to master the mathematical tools needed for many science and social science courses. Other students take statistics to understand and analyze the arguments about data that we see in the real world. Some students continue on, exploring mathematics not only as a set of tools but as an intellectual pursuit; every statement demands a proof, and the need for creativity is in evidence. The mathematics major is structured around a few required core courses, to which students add a number of electives. Students can work with their advisors to select courses that best fit their interests.
