Academics

The Department of Mathematical Sciences assists students in mastering quantitative skills relevant to careers in business, industry, government, and teaching at the elementary, secondary, and college levels.

Undergraduate Programs

The bachelor's degrees in the mathematical sciences offer a flexible curriculum adaptable to the professional objectives of the individual. By combining a strong background in the mathematical sciences with appropriately chosen study in related fields, the degree programs prepare students for their desired careers. The Department offers

  • a Bachelor of Science degree in Actuarial Science;
  • a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with concentrations in Business, Computation, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Secondary Education, and Statistics as well as a General, self-designed concentration; and
  • a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics.

Course requirements for these programs can be found in the Department's section of the 2018-19 Undergraduate Bulletin. Students who entered in an earlier year should refer to the documents on the Program of Study website.

Graduate Program

The Master of Arts in Mathematics provides a rigorous graduate education in mathematics with the added benefit of gaining hands-on training and experience with teaching. It can qualify students for advanced teacher licensure in high school mathematics, prepare students for community college teaching positions, or serve as excellent preparation for doctoral programs in mathematics or mathematics education. Students complete the program with solid foundations in mathematics as well as knowledge of pedagogical issues such as collaborative learning, effective classroom teaching, assessment strategies, and the use of technology in the classroom.

Course requirements can be found on the Math Graduate Program website.
