The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has 25 tenure-line faculty, with a wide range of backgrounds and interests, who are committed to the success of the Department’s undergraduate and Master’s level students. The Department offers approximately 40 undergraduate mathematics and statistics courses as well as 10 graduate courses. Classes are generally small, with many opportunities for faculty-student contact. The Department’s Bachelor of Arts degree allows for an emphasis in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, or teaching, and graduates have had much success finding employment in both the public and private sectors, particularly in secondary school teaching and local private industry. A minor in mathematics or statistics as well as a Master of Arts in Mathematics are also offered, with a certificate program in data science currently under development.
The Department values diversity and inclusion as part of a university-wide commitment to being an inclusive institution where all students, faculty, staff, and administrators feel welcome and a sense of belonging.
