Mathematics is the exact study of abstract patterns and relationships. The objects that mathematicians study — such as numbers, operations, shapes, and relationships — are abstract and underlie all physical reality but have no physical reality themselves, existing only in the consciousness of the mathematician. Thus, mathematicians study the functioning of intelligence itself.
In their work, mathematicians refer to the principles of intelligence in their own consciousness and are able to discover the same principles of order and intelligence that govern all areas of life. Thus, mathematics is able to provide the basic language for all other sciences and has applications in every area of life.
Students who study mathematics at Maharishi International University learn to see the connections between the functioning of their own intelligence and mathematical knowledge. They acquire the quantitative skills, problem-solving abilities, and clarity of thinking that provide a basis for success and leadership in technology-based careers. Graduates of the program in mathematics are prepared to enter a wide range of careers or continue their education with graduate or professional studies.
