If you're a math major you know that the world of mathematics is much more diverse and complicated than arithmetic, algebra, and calculus. From applied to theoretical math, these concepts are crucial for virtually every aspect of the modern world.

Unfortunately, a lot of math majors assume they can't study math abroad. That's so far from the truth! Study abroad can broaden your perspective on any subject, not just the humanities. And math is a universal language and an ever-expanding discipline, one where people are making groundbreaking developments all over the world.

Studying math abroad is a great opportunity to allow you to see how other countries study it, how they apply it, and broaden your perspective on your post-college career in math. You may be introduced to another branch of math that could change your study or career path, and you will certainly return home with a renewed interest in learning.

Statistics

Studying statistics abroad means analyzing data for practical use -- from looking at medical data to Facebook and anything in between. If you're majoring in statistics, studying abroad is a great option for you. Going overseas will help you refine your cross-cultural and problem-solving skills, plus you'll have access to unique data you might not find at home.

Engineering

Studying engineering abroad could include electrical, audio, chemical, mechanical, or computer engineering. By studying the field overseas, you'll be able to learn different approaches to the field (not every country has an identical approach to engineering) and learning how to apply the study to an international field.

Some programs will include an internship component to their engineering programs abroad to give students the ability to learn then apply their skills while studying engineering abroad.

There are many top-rated math programs at universities all across the world, so you have a lot of options when deciding where to study math abroad! There are a few universities in China with very well regarded math programs, including Peking University and the University of Hong Kong.

Other universities in major urban hubs throughout Asia, including in Singapore and Tokyo, also offer excellent math programs.

If you're interested in studying abroad in Europe, consider England or France. England has some of the top universities in the world, and the University of Cambridge and Oxford both have rigorous and renowned math departments. France, meanwhile, is home to the math and technology powerhouse, Ecole Polytechnique.

Keep in mind that if your home university math major makes study abroad difficult for a semester or an entire year, there are some really great options for a summer study abroad experience. This will give you a chance to have the quintessential study abroad experience but without loosing any ground in coursework for your major.
