# Mathematical, Physical, and Computer Sciences

Build, model, experiment, and code. Reason logically and creatively about computational, mathematical, and physical systems. Work with modern computing and research technology.

**Note:** You can join or leave a Path of Study at any time and your credits will always count toward your Bachelor’s degree.

## About Mathematical, Physical, and Computer Sciences

Computational, mathematical, and physical systems reflect an underlying order. As mathematicians and scientists, we seek to understand, explain, and predict that order through model building, experimentation, logical reasoning, and creative insight. In this Path of Study, you’ll be prepared for advanced work in chemistry, computer science, geology, mathematics, and physics.

Study these subjects collaboratively in classrooms, the lab, research groups, and out in the field. Apply creative and critical thinking to real-world problems and systems. Get hands-on access to cutting-edge computing, lab, and research technology that connects theory with practice and gives you technical and 21st-century skills that directly transfer to graduate school and the workplace. Design and carry out your own projects that will connect you to scientific literature; in advanced programs, these projects often result in capstone opportunities. Ultimately, you’ll become a responsible and ethical scientist and citizen, effective team member, and creative communicator, able to convey complex ideas to diverse audiences.
