The Department of Mathematics aspires to achieve an active, collaborative learning community where each member contributes to the learning of others. To develop such a community for learning, the Department has an academically diversified faculty with specializations from many fields of mathematics. The main goal of the Department is to prepare students for graduate school, teaching and professional careers in mathematics through its major and minor programs. The Department strives to develop competent, confident, enthusiastic majors who have a broad foundation in the study of mathematics and who can apply their developed skills and knowledge to a wide variety of theoretical and applied programs. 

Learn more about each of our programs:

  • BA in Mathematics
    Students pursuing a BA in mathematics will develop an understanding of mathematical structures, logical analysis of mathematical applications, critical thinking and problem solving techniques. This degree is well suited for education-related careers and many industrial careers.
  • BS in Mathematics
    In this program, students will develop a deep understanding of real and complex mathematical structures, logical analysis of mathematical applications, critical thinking and problem-solving techniques, with an emphasis on mathematics used in physical sciences. This degree is well suited for engineering careers and for students seeking to pursue graduate school.
  • Minor in Mathematics
    The minor in mathematics is designed for students with strength and interest in mathematics but in pursuit of a degree in another field. The intent of the minor is to give students an exposure to the basic disciplines of mathematics and an opportunity for further study in advanced topics in mathematics.
  • Minor in Statistics
    A minor in statistics develops proficiency in statistical techniques. The minor is suitable for science, computer science, or business majors who wish to enhance their quantitative skills and analytical thinking for their major. It also improves their graduate school and career prospects.
The bachelor of arts in mathematics will prepare a student well for a career in data analysis, actuary, or mathematics education. Any science, technology, or engineering career makes full use of a strong mathematics foundation. The bachelor of science in mathematics is well suited for engineering-related careers and for pursuing graduate school in mathematics. A minor in mathematics lays a strong foundation for those who wish to pursue higher education in the sciences or in business. A minor in statistics is advantageous to biostatistics, quality control, operations research, economic forecasting, marketing analysis and related professions.
