The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers undergraduate programs leading to the B.A. and B.S. degrees in Mathematics, as well as a minor in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics. The goal of all of the department’s programs is to produce students who are both technically competent and sufficiently well grounded in theory that they can contribute to fundamental research in their chosen specialty.
To give a professional direction to the student’s liberal arts education, the mathematics major may choose a concentration in mathematics, statistics, or high school licensure. There are many opportunities for math majors in industry, actuarial sciences, government, business, and secondary school teaching. The mathematics programs also provide excellent preparation for graduate studies in many areas, including computer science, economics, engineering, law, mathematics, operations research, and statistics.
