Do you want to go beyond a typical mathematics education? In our math department classes, you’ll do more than study traditional mathematics: you’ll connect what you’re learning to your innermost self and everything around you while growing as a person with the support of our faculty.
Learn Math with Less Stress
In our math major, you’ll be challenged and expected to meet high standards. But you will also have advantages. You’ll take only one full-time course per month, giving you the chance to interact with faculty, engage in classroom activities that go beyond just lectures in order to understand mathematics more deeply, and integrate abstract mathematical concepts and principles into your way of dealing with the world.
Studying at MUM involves more than just academics.
Our students follow a healthy routine that involves getting adequate rest at night, eating organic food in our dining hall, time to focus on their own holistic development, and more.
All students at MUM practice the Transcendental MeditationⓇ technique daily. This technique has been proven to develop creativity, enhance clear thinking, and promote a deep sense of inner calm.
During meditation, you’ll experience the inner quiet that is essential to grasping mathematical concepts and solving problems. After regular practice, our students often find that they have a clearer mind with which to tackle their studies.
Preparation for Success
Our students learn quantitative skills and problem-solving abilities that prepare them for success in technology-based careers.
Once you graduate, you’ll be ready to enter the career of your choice or continue your education with graduate or professional studies.
Math Major Tracks
Our math major offers several tracks of study:
- Mathematics Track: This track provides a strong foundation in mathematics that includes an introduction to real analysis and abstract algebra, plus a limited number of electives in mathematics, computer science, and/or physics. Learn more ➤
- Mathematics and Computer Science Track: This track blends mathematics courses with courses in computer science and a senior project in computer science. Learn more ➤
- Mathematics and Physics Track: This track allows students to include more science courses than the Mathematics Track. Learn more ➤
We also offer a minor in mathematics for those who want to add some math knowledge to their major program. Read more about the minor ➤

Faculty Profile: Anne Dow
Professor Anne Down came to Maharishi University of Management because she found the students here to be happy, alert, focused, receptive, interested in mathematics, and able to understand their courses deeply. They were clearly realizing their full potential. She saw that mathematics at MUM is understood from a much wider perspective. Each topic covered is seen in relation to the rest of mathematics, the environment and society, all of knowledge, and oneself. Ultimately, Anne found that studying and teaching mathematics in this context gave her great fulfillment and a feeling of purpose.
