The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers courses in Mathematics, Statistics, and Actuarial Science. In conjunction with our educational mission, we host student groups in each of these areas, and we support a vibrant research atmosphere.
Our undergraduate program offers Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees in Mathematics, with seven possible areas of specialization. In conjunction with the College of Computing and Digital Media, we also offer a joint Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Mathematics and Computer Science.
Many students come to the Department to obtain the mathematical background needed for programs in the natural sciences, computer science, the social sciences, or business. These students may wish to supplement their program of study with a minor in mathematics or statistics.
Our graduate program offers Master of Science (MS) degrees in Applied Mathematics, Applied Statistics, Pure Mathematics, and Mathematics for Teaching, and a Master of Arts (MA) degree in Mathematics Education. In the spring of their junior year, undergraduate mathematics majors can apply to enter one of our combined degree programs. These programs enable students to complete both a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in about five years.
