Mathematics
"My favorite part of studying at UL Lafayette is the community of friends and classmates I’ve built since arriving here. Almost all math majors know each other and are friends. Additionally, I’ve been able to make friends beyond the walls of Maxim Doucet thanks to the minors I am pursuing.”
You should major in mathematics if:
 You enjoy critical and analytical thinking.
 You’re drawn to the science of numbers and their manipulation.
