Integrated Major in Math and English (IMME)
The Integrated Major in Math and English (IMME) is an innovative program designed to prepare students with high-level skills in both mathematics and English stressing an integrated, complementary mastery of these disciplines.  Four mathematics  concentration areas are available: Financial/Actuarial, Applied, Pre-Education Math, and Theoretical. These are combined with a strong foundation in English, including critical and analytical writing, and an opportunity to choose electives.  The English Department fosters empathy, textual analysis and communication. Mathematics teaches precision in modeling and in analyzing real-world problems, and involves skills in calculation and numerical analysis.  Students will be well prepared for positions in banking, insurance, marketing, consulting, non-profit organizations, and other fields that require both some mathematical awareness and strong communication skills, as well as for application to graduate and professional schools.  Read more.  For more information, contact program advisor Diana DeVol Bevilacqua at  devol-bevilacqua.1@osu.edu or MaryKatherine Ramsey at ramsey.240@osu.edu.
