Academic Programs

Undergraduate Study

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers the B.A. and B.S. degrees with a major in mathematics and the B.S. degree with a major in statistics.  There is a program for a major in mathematics that qualifies a student for initial teaching licensure.  A concentration in computational sciences is also available.  Minors are offered in mathematics and statistics.

The statistics program's website contains detailed information on all aspects of the statistics minor and majors including courses, program information, internships and awards.

Detailed information on the programs offered and degree requirements for mathematics and statistics degrees can be found in the Undergraduate Course Catalog. Course information can be found in the Catalog's courses and descriptions.

The Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies (IDLS) major is recommended for students interested in early or middle grades education. The IDLS major requires a collection of lower-division courses along with two upper-level concentrations. 

Information for Freshman Advisors

Courses in mathematics and statistics also count towards the new Environmental Minors program.

Courses in the mathematics and statistics department may utilize the Department's First Week Attendance Policy as stated below. If  this policy is to be used in a course, it will be stated on the course syllabus.

First Week Attendance Policy: At the instructor's discretion, any student registered for a class in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics who does not attend at least one of the first two scheduled meetings of the class (or does not attend the first scheduled meeting of a class that meets once a week) MAY be administratively dropped from the class. Students will be notified by e-mail if they will be dropped. Students who fail to attend should not assume they will be administratively dropped by their instructor; it is the student’s responsibility to drop the course on their own or they will receive a grade at the end of the semester. All students are responsible for verifying the accuracy of their schedules and changes made in their schedules. 


Graduate Study

A Master of Education in Mathematics degree is also offered that prepares secondary teachers for positions of instructional leadership as master teachers of mathematics. The program extends the professional competence of secondary mathematics teachers through an in-depth study of mathematics and mathematics teaching and learning. Details of the program, course descriptions, and how to apply can be found in the Graduate Course Catalog.
