Contact details for the Department at this time

The Department of Mathematical Sciences remains dedicated to supporting the campus population. We are actively practicing social distancing, which means we remain open for business but we are limiting the number of students, faculty and staff on campus. At this time, we are currently working to provide assistance virtually or by phone.

If you need to contact us:

  • Call 828-262-3050 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (No answer? Leave a message!)
  • Email one of the faculty or staff listed in our people directory. (Updated 3/20/20)


Welcome! We are part of the College of Arts and Sciences at Appalachian State University. Our faculty's expertise spans the  disciplines of actuarial science, pure and applied mathematics, mathematics education, and statistics. Mathematical Sciences offices and classrooms are in Walker Hall at the west end of campus.

We offer undergraduate degrees in Actuarial Science and Mathematics. The mathematics program includes concentrations in business, computation, life sciences, physical sciences, secondary teaching, and statistics, as well as a general, self-designed concentration.

We also offer the Master of Arts Degree in Mathematics with concentrations in college teaching and secondary teaching.

The sharing of ideas and information across the mathematical disciplines makes our department a rich place to teach and learn. The success of our students in getting jobs reflects our efforts to provide our students with excellent training for today's job market, combined with a broad education for the future.
