Heather Wiese, Math Major

“I went to Duke wanting to study both math and theater, but worried about the difficulty of pursuing two such different majors. Fortunately, I connected early on with wonderful mentors in the Math department who were supportive of both my interests. I have been able to blend my math and theater majors, even developing a senior distinction project that involves performing a play about math. I also had the opportunity to serve as a TA and work in the math help room, which was perfect for someone like me who wants to teach math. While I don’t consider myself a ‘math genius,’ I felt at home in the math department and they have helped me achieve my unique education goals.”
