Students pursue mathematics at UMass Boston to engage their love for the subject
when they choose it as their major, to support their work in other disciplines,
to prepare for careers in teaching, to satisfy the Quantitative Reasoning
requirement, or to meet college distribution requirements. To everyone,
Welcome!
