Mathematics & Statistics

Mathematics is the study of structures and phenomena that arise in science, theory, and daily life. Statistics yields remarkable insight into the data that pervade modern life.

At Amherst the study of mathematics includes both its pure and applied aspects as well as offerings in statistics. We offer courses for majors and for any student interested in mathematics or statistics as a liberal art.
