The Department of Mathematical Sciences aspires to achieve an active and collaborative learning community where each member contributes to the learning of others. To develop such a learning community, the Department has an academically diversified faculty with specializations from many fields of mathematics and physics. The main goal of the Department is to allow students to function as scientists in the workplace and to prepare them for graduate school and teaching through its major and minor programs. The Department strives to develop competent, confident, enthusiastic students who have a broad foundation in the study of mathematical science and who can apply their developed skills and knowledge to a wide variety of theoretical and applied programs. For those students who are not science majors, it is our goal to provide exposure to the process of doing science and a broad knowledge of the field of physics along with applications of these sciences to everyday life.
