The department provides courses for students anticipating employment or graduate work in mathematics, statistics, or mathematics education. In addition, we offer courses for students wishing to use mathematics or statistics in support of another major or simply to learn something new and quantitative.

About the Major

The major begins with calculus and moves to intermediate courses that lay the foundation for further exploration of mathematics. One is required to take a theoretical course in analysis or algebra and also a course (or one can demonstrate proficiency) in computer programming. From there, the department offers a rich collection of advanced mathematics courses that prepare students for a variety of career options.

Statistics Concentration

The mathematics major can be designed to include a concentration in statistics. This prepares students for careers in several professional disciplines and is beneficial to students who intend to pursue advanced degrees in fields such as business, economics, and statistics itself. In addition to courses in applied statistics, probability and mathematical statistics, students complete the concentration by taking seminars, special topics courses, and independent studies.
