Guide for Math Students

Welcome to Yale! You’re at one of the world’s leading universities for research and education in mathematics, and during your time at Yale you’ll have the opportunity to take classes from world-renowned mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists, conduct independent research, and be a part of a community of scholars and a society of friends who share your passion for mathematics.

This guide is here to help you navigate your time as a mathematics major at Yale. To the left, there is a sidebar of pages which will cover choosing courses, requirements for the major, getting involved outside of class, tips on applying to graduate school, resources to help you in class, and information on how to get free pizza and learn about new ideas at the same time. We hope you find the guide useful, and if you have any questions or comments for us, don’t hesitate to write us an email or swing by the Math Lounge to say ‘Hi!’
