MATH 298 - Math, Mathematicians, and Mathematical Careers

The primary goal of this course is to provide students considering a math major with the space to situate themselves within mathematics and the broad mathematical community. Over the course of the semester, students will gain a more nuanced understanding of what math is and who mathematicians are.  They will also develop a more clearly articulated narrative melding their mathematics with the rest of their background and  ”professionalizing” what they are getting out of their mathematical study, have conversations with alums about their career paths, and investigate several career options.  In addition, they will gain experience presenting mathematical content to an audience through a number of short presentations.
