Department of Mathematics and Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a four-year program in mathematics that leads to the bachelor of science degree and curriculum that leads to a minor in mathematics. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of three groups of students: (1) those who plan to seek employment in business, industry, or government, (2) those who plan to attend graduate school to continue their study of mathematics or a related field, and (3) those who plan to be secondary school teachers.

Students majoring in mathematics are encouraged to use their elective hours to complete a second major, or at least a concentration of 18 hours or more, in the field of their choice. For example, students interested in computer science are advised to complete the following courses:

and two additional courses selected from COMS 3213 Algorithm Design and Analysis, COMS 3503 Visual Programming, COMS 3803 , and COMS 4203 .
