Mathematics & Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers degree curricula in mathematics and in applied mathematics (with its various options), as well as minors and a minor in statistics. Majors acquire a firm foundation in mathematics preparing them for further study, or for careers in mathematics or statistics, and related fields. For a minor in MATH or STAT see the “Minors” heading earlier in this section.

This curriculum of Mathematics provides students with a general background in Mathematics preparing them for graduate studies in Mathematics, or careers that require mathematical knowledge and problem solving skills, and is well suited for students who wish to pursue career in teaching Mathematics in a university/college, or who desire more flexibility or emphasis in liberal arts.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers three options in the field of Applied Mathematics. The option in Applied Mathematics is suitable for students who are preparing for graduate work in mathematics, or applied mathematics, as well as for those anticipating careers which are supported by significant applied mathematics such as engineering, physical sciences, or computer science, and the more recently mathematicized fields of biological, behavioral, or managerial sciences.

The option in Discrete Mathematics prepares students for graduate work in mathematics or theoretical computer science, and for careers in industry supported by discrete mathematics dealing with problems in graph theory, operations research, discrete optimization, computer science, communications and information sciences.

The option in Actuarial Science prepares students for a career in the insurance industry and in other businesses relying on the expertise of actuaries, but is at the same time flexible enough to allow its graduates to enter graduate programs in mathematics and related areas.

Students should consult the departmental advisor to determine appropriate technical electives for the emphasis of their choice.
