Welcome to the homepage for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. It is a great time to be interested in mathematics and statistics due to the many applications and job opportunities in these fields. Our department offers programsleading to undergraduate degrees in mathematics, statistics, and teacher licensure, as well as a graduate degree in mathematics and a graduate certificate in applied statistics. Students graduating from these programs have had universal success in finding jobs. These include employment as actuaries, teachers, SAS programmers, biostatisticians, analysts and much, much more! In addition to successfully placing students in jobs, our program is also successful in preparing students for future graduate studies in mathematics, mathematics education, statistics, and computer science.
