The purpose of the Department of Mathematical Sciences is to provide students education in the mathematical sciences necessary to function and succeed in an increasingly complex, technological world.
Courses offered by the department are designed to prepare students who plan to enter graduate schools or professional schools of medicine or engineering; to teach in elementary schools, secondary schools, or community colleges; to major in mathematics, in computer science, in the natural or physical sciences, or in other areas with mathematics requirements; or to enter careers in business, industry, or government. Courses also are provided to meet cultural and General Education requirements.
Programs in the department lead to the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Mathematics. Students choose one of the following concentrations: Professional Mathematics, Mathematics Education, or Actuarial Science. Minors are offered in Mathematics; in Mathematics for Managerial, Social, and Life Sciences; and in Statistics.
MATH 1730 , MATH 1910 , and MATH 1920 are offered regularly for students in the University Honors College. Upon request by the Honors College, MATH 1010 and MATH 1710 are offered. MATH 4600 can also be offered as an Honors course.
The Master of Science and Master of Science in Teaching degrees are offered in mathematics. A minor in Mathematics is offered for the master’s degree. Requirements for these degrees and a list of the courses offered for graduate credit are in the Graduate Catalog.
