The Department of Mathematics offers the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees with a major in mathematics. Minors are offered in mathematics and statistics.

The department offers programs of study which lead to careers as mathematicians and statisticians in industry and government, and mathematics teachers; and to further study in graduate school.

The department also recognizes the importance of providing courses for non-specialists who need to make effective use of mathematics or statistics in their chosen careers. The university is an institutional/ educational member of the American Mathematical Society, the American Statistical Association, the Mathematical Association of America and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

The department offers a major in mathematics. Minors are offered in mathematics and statistics. Within the mathematics major, concentrations are available in computational and applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics. There is, in addition, a program for a major in mathematics that qualifies a student for initial teaching licensure.

Students are strongly encouraged to participate in the numerous undergraduate research and individual and small group projects available in the department. Opportunities exist through the Center for Mathematical Modeling and the Office of Statistical Services, as well as through honors theses and independent studies with individual faculty mentors.

Majors in the department are expected to participate in assessment activities. Assessment information is used to assist faculty in modifying curricula.
