Fair enough. That is why I included other mentions in the post.
As for what is studied in universities, I received my degree in mathematics. But, philosophy departments teach an awful lot of mathematics relative to metamathematics and computer science departments teach an awful lot of mathematics relative to computation. That does not even touch what goes on in business schools or physics departments.
I enjoyed what I had learned. Apparently, I had been brainwashed...
math.stackexchange.com and mathoverflow.net have a wide selection of classical mathematical questions and answers.
Of course, others have already given you those choices.
