BA in Mathematics & Philosophy
Mathematics and philosophy have a deep connection, as evidenced by philosophy’s use of tools from mathematical logic and by the role of philosophy in the foundations of mathematics. The joint major in Mathematics & Philosophy allows students to explore the rich connection between the two subjects. It is particularly appropriate for students interested in the foundations of mathematics and logic.
